Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Percent means part of a hundred. So, let's look at what 25/100 means. It means the same as 25 out of every 100 and can be written as 25%.

One way to solve problems using percents is by writing an equation.

Problem

Find 10% of $50

Equation

 10% of $50 = n Write 10% as a decimal Remember "of" means multiply 0.1 x 50 = n n = 5

Solution

10% of $50 = $5.00


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
