Finding a percentage of a number.

Old topic, I know.
But I know of an easy way to find a percentage of any number, and I want to share this on the blog.

Let's pick a number, shall we?
How about.....53
Let's find 64% of 53

So to find the percentage, find 1% of the number.
(which is done by dividing your number by 100)
1% of 53 is 0.53

Then multiply that number by the percentage you're trying to find.
I got 33.92

So there we have it, 64% of 53 is 33.92.
