what is 65%of 160?
and if u could give me some sample problems to look over that would be wonderful.thank you for the help.
in order to calculate a percentage all you need to do is times the number that you want to know the percentage of by the percentage needed and then divide by 100...
so for 65% of 160 you would...
first times it by 65... = 10400
then divide by 100... = 104
thus 65% of 160 is 104... this is because a percentage is really a short hand of the number divided by 100... (for 65 this is 65/100)... and whenever there is an 'of' in a maths question it usually means times and so it's the number times the percentage(which is a fraction)
hope that helps!!

If you use the above arrangements, you should be able to solve pretty much every percentage problem you will encounter.
Hope this helps.
