Taking 10% of any number is really easy.

10% = 10/100 = 1/10

To take 1/10 of a number, divide it by 10. The shortcut to dividing by 10 is to move the decimal point 1 place to the left.

Think of money

100% = $1.00 10% = $0.10 (dime)0.10 X 547.00 = 54.7

To change any % to a decimal write the % as a fraction with a denominator of 100.

Divide the numerator by the denominator

Example 25 % as a decimal

25 / 100 = 0.25
