Find the percent of a number

In this tutorial, we learn how to find the percent of a number. First, take the percent and convert it into a decimal. Then, multiply this by your other number. After this, you will come up with the answer to the problem. An example of this would be if you had the question: what number is 25% of 40. First, you would find the decimal of 25, which is .25. After this, you would multiply that by 40 and then come up with the correct answer, which is 10. Repeat this process for the different equations, then you will be prepared to take on more difficult problems!
