Ten percent of 100 is ten dollars. Percents are very easy with 100. For example, 2 percent of 100 is 2 and 23 percent of 100 is 23. The pattern is pretty clear.

This is because percent means part of 100. That is what the "cen" part means. Think of the words century (100 years), cents (100 in a dollar). These examples may help you remember it.
