To determine the percent of a number do the following steps:

  • Multiply the number by the percent (e.g. 87 * 68 = 5916)
  • Divide the answer by 100 (Move decimal point two places to the left) (e.g. 5916/100 = 59.16)
  • Round to the desired precision (e.g. 59.16 rounded to the nearest whole number = 59)
