1. ## 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

\frac {0.6}{100} \times 413400.00

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