Here's how I did it.

First I take the percent and turn it into a fraction, lets take 73% as an example.

that is 73/100, because you can't break it down any more you leave it as is.

To get the whole number you do the following formula:

y=(100*x)/73 where x = the percent

to get the percent from the whole number you can do this:

x=(73*y)/100 where y= the whole number

So lets say you're wanting to see how much money you will need to make, where the tax is 27% (wouldn't that be nice :P)

Lets say your total expenses say you should make 7.32/hr (total expenses per month/160 work hours)

(100*7.32) = 732

732/73 = 10.027397260273972602739726027397

so you would need to make $10.03 to meet the bare minimum.

have a nice day :D

You turn a fraction into a decimal by dividing the top number by the bottom. And you turn a decimal into a percent by multiplying the decimal by 100.

Put it over 100!

13% of 112 is 14.56. We get this because to find a percent of something, we divide the percent by 100, so for example this 13% would turn into 0.13, then we multiply this by our original number, in this case 112. This will give us what 13% of this number is.

13% is a fraction and you cannot represent it as a whole number. You can convert it to a whole number by adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing (or other operations) but that would not be the same number then.

Multiply by 100 and add a percentage sign. So, for example, 350 = 35000% 3.5 = 350% 0.0035 = 0.35%
