# What is 2.5 percent of 8000?

The easiest and simplest way to calculate a percentage of any number is to remember that 10% of any number, is the number itself with the decimal point one place to the left.

• I.e 10% of 1478 is 147.8 (The decimal one place to the left)
• 10% of 100,000,000 is 10,000,000.

That means that 10% of 80.00 is 8.000 (keeping the insignificant digits). So 20% would be \$16.00. But we need 5 percent more, so we just split our 10% in half. Half of 8 is 4. So 25% of 80.00 is 16 + 4 which is 20. Wiki User

We can use a proportion to find it out.

x/80=25/100

We want to find x. We can use the Cross Product Property here.

100*x=25*80

100x=2000

100x/100=2000/100

x=20

So, 25% of 80 is 20.   Wiki User

25% of 8000
= 25% * 8000
= 0.25 * 8000
= 2000   Wiki User
