 Click here to see ALL problems on percentage Question 529617: how to do percentages.Answer by josmiceli(9668)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You need to fix in your mind that per cent means "per one-hundred" Think of the % sign as saying: you need to divide this number by 100. ------------------------- Suppose I say 67% % means to divide it by 100, so what I really have is 67/100 = .67 ------------------------ Another problem you will see is: convert .67 to a percent The algebra for this is .67 = x/100 This says: .67 is what percent ? Multiply both sides by 100 67 = x, so 67/100 = 67 percent Hope this helps
