# Math Help - Question on Percent

1. ## Question on Percent

This is really silly, but I am stuck on a simple percent!

Could you please tell me what 0.4 percent of 650 is? Is it just multiplied as it is, or does the decimal move?

Thanks so much!

RainieB,
Just Multiply. But be carefull about "0.4 percent"
"0.4 percent" means = 0.4% and also equal to (0.4/100)
Therefor, 0.4% of 650 will be (0.4/100) x 650 = 2.6

3. ## Thank you

Thank you very much for your quick response!!!

4. very simple.. :
0.4 % of 650.

$\frac {0.4}{100}$ x $650$

= $\frac {\frac {4}{10}}{100}$ x $650$

= $\frac {4}{10}$ x $\frac {1}{100}$ x $650$

= $2.6$

hope this helps!!
