You cannot write it as a percent until you know what part it is of a whole. However, if we assume that 180 is the only number, then it is 100% of 180. Therefore, we write 180 as 100%

A whole number is an integer that has no decimals or fractions attached to it.

Multiply by 25 If the % is 4% and you know the number 4% is. We know 4 goes into 100 25 times. 100 divided by 4 = 25

You know when a fraction is equivalent to a whole number when both the numerator and denominator is the same. For example 2/2 is equivalent to the number two.

"Percent" means "out of 100", so you know that your denominator is 100, and your numerator is 140 (140/100). 140 is over 100 by 40, so as a result, 1 would be your whole number (because 1 whole is 100/100), 40 would be your numerator, and you always keep your same denominator, 100.

When expressing a math problem in words, the word "of" almost always means "multiply". Say that you know that 1199.91 is [equals] 23 percent of a number. The right side of the obvious equation is .23(a number), or .23x. 1199.91 equals .23x and all you have to do is divide both sides by .23 to find your answer. 1199.91/.23 is equal to 5217. If you have the part and the percent but you need to find the whole then this is the equation....for example 11 is 80% of_____? to figure it out you use this part over whole =percent over 100.... P =part, w=whole, and percent=x it looks like p x _ = _ w 100 The anser to my example one is W=13.75

it is whole

You're supposed to know by now that 65% means 0.65 . Just multiply that by your number.

to write it as a percent, you need to know the whole. So 2.85 out of what?

You cannot write it as a percent until you know what part it is of a whole. However, if we assume that 180 is the only number, then it is 100% of 180. Therefore, we write 180 as 100%

Divide the number by nineteen. If the answer is a whole number, then the number is divisible.

To get the percent of a number you must multiply the percent you are finding by the number you are finding the percent of. For example: We must find 30% of 12, 450. You must multiply 30% to 12, 450. 12, 450 * 30% (or 0.30) = 3735 It's easy if you know what I mean.

We know that 70 percent is 70/100 or .7, and we know that 15 percent is 15/100 or .15. Now we know that to find 15 % of 70 %, we multiply .7 times .15 and we get .105 for an answer.
