the percent of a number is when you multiply the percentage by the number, for example:
8% of 40
40 x 0.08= 20%
20% of 40
0.20 x 40=8%
Multiply the number by .8 to get 80% of that number.
Percent is based on the number 100.
A percent is a ratio of a number to 100.
Two choices: -- Multiply (the number) x (the percent using the percent % key). -- Multiply (the number) x (the percent), then divide the answer by 100. Either way, the claculator displays that many percent of that number.
