This video in the Education category will show you how to find a percentage of a number. For example, what is 12% of 56? The simple way to do this is to find 10% of 56; which is 5. 6. Then you find 1% of 56 is .56. Then you add 10% plus 1% plus 1%, that is, 5. 6 plus .56 plus .56; which is 6. 72. And that's the answer. The other way to do this is to make decimal out of 12; which is .12. Now multiply .12 by 56 and the product is 6. 72. These are the two methods of finding out a percentage of a number.
