Percentages

"Percent" means out of 100.

To find a percentage of a number, try finding 10% (by dividing by 10) and then calculating the percentage you need:

e.g. 35% of 2400

       10% would be 240

       30% would be 240 x 3 = 720

       5% would be 240 divided by 2 (10% divided by 2) = 120

       so, 35% of 2400 is 720 + 120 = 840
