    Smile Percentages

    Hello all.

    Just to make sure in order to find 0.6% of 413.400.00 all I have to do is multipy that number by 0.6% on my calculator right?

    Thanks for your help.

    Or by 0.6/100 = 6 \times 10^{-3}

    I've never understood the percentage button on my calculator xD

    whenever you are calculating percentages put the percentage over 100 (because percentages are out of 100) and multiply it by the total.
