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?
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.
