To find x% of something, you need to multiply the number by x% in its decimal form, which you do by dividing it by 100. For example, to find 76% of 2300:\[\Large (76 \div 100) \times 2300\]

If "a" is the number you begin with, and "b" is the percentage you want to find, simply multiply them: \[a*b=answer\]

As fewscrewsmiss said or just turn % to a decimal. For example. what is 10% of 90. Drop the % sign. Where the percent sign was, which is the right side, move two digit to the left and put a point. so 10% would = .10 When changing a % to a decimal, drop the percent sign and always move it two digits over to the left. Now just multiply the decimal and the 90 and you will find the percent. Remember, don't forget the decimal when you multiply them. .10 times 90 = 9.00 so 10% of 90 is 9
