Percent is from the Latin "per cent", meaning "of one hundred".

So, 6 percent of 600 dollars means "6 dollars out of every one hundred dollars".

Since there are 6 one hundreds in six hundred, the answer is 6 x 6, or 36 dollars.

If you happen to be calculating sales tax, that amount is added to the bill. So your sub-total would be $600, your tax would be $36, and your total would be $636.
