Percentage is quite simple a little trick to work out a percentage of something. example you have a brand new car that costs $15000 you need to work out what 13% of the $15000 a simple way is to divide $15000 by 100 which gives you 150 then multiply it by 13 so 150x13 = 1950 hope this little trick helps out.
