Example one

First we check how much is one percent: we divide 900 by 100. We get 9. Then we multiply one percent by **60**(

**60**% =

**60**per hundred =

**60**percent) so 9 x

**60**= 540.

Then, how do I calculate a percentage?

To **calculate** the **percentage** of a specific number, you first convert the **percentage** number to a decimal. This process is the reverse of what you did earlier. You divide your **percentage** by 100. So, 40% would be 40 divided by 100 or .

Similarly, what is the formula for finding a percentage? The math to determine a percentage is to divide the numerator (the number on top of the fraction) by the denominator (the number on the bottom of the fraction), then **multiply** the answer by 100. For example, the fraction 6/12 turns into a decimal like this: 6 divided by 12 (which equals . 5) times 100 equals 50 percent.

Thereof, what number is 20% of 60?

300

How do I find the volume?

**Units of Measure**

- Volume = length x width x height.
- You only need to know one side to figure out the volume of a cube.
- The units of measure for volume are cubic units.
- Volume is in three-dimensions.
- You can multiply the sides in any order.
- Which side you call length, width, or height doesn't matter.
