Best Answer

To turn a percentage into a number, you have to know what the percentage is of. You divide the percentage by 100 to get a decimal and then multiply the decimal by the number the percentage is out of.

For example, if we wanted to find 125% of 12:

125/100 = 1.25

1.25 x 12 = 15

125% of 12 is 15.
