If you have forgotten how to take a percent of a number, below is a brief description of how to do that followed by a video clip demonstrating the same problem.
A percentage is a fraction or ratio of a number with the denominator (the bottom number of a fraction) being 100. For example 25% is the ratio 25/100 which is equivalent to the decimal 0.25. Any percentage can be converted to a decimal by moving the decimal point two places to the left of the decimal if there is one. For example 37% or 37.0% is equivalent to 0.37 or 58.9% is equivalent to 0.589. Notice how the decimal point was moved.
Here are some examples of how to take a percent of a number.
