In this video the instructor shows how to compute percentage problems. Percentage was first used in ancient Rome when the emperor Augusts levied a 1/100 of a tax on goods sold. To solve percentage problems you need to know how to convert between percentages and decimals.

For example to convert .50 to percentage, we move the decimal to two places right giving 50%. Similarly 25% in decimal form will be .25. Now using this the instructor shows how to solve percentage problems. This video shows how to work with percentages.
