# How to Find 75 Percent of a Number

Sharing this tip may help you or a friend solve a problem. Imagine you want to divide a number by 75 percent. Hopefully, this article will provide a clear and accurate answer to this problem.

### Calculate

It is valuable to know the origin of the term â€‹percentâ€‹ if you want to truly understand how to calculate a percentage. The word â€‹percentâ€‹ comes from the phrase per cent. â€‹Centâ€‹ is a root that means one hundred, so per cent literally means per one hundred. For example, if you know that 30 percent of the students in a school are boys, that means that there are 30 boys per one hundred students. Another way to say this is that 30 out of 100 students are boys.

Generally, the way to figure out any percentage is to multiply the number of items in question, or â€‹Xâ€‹, by the â€‹decimalâ€‹ form of the percent. To figure out the decimal form of a percent, simply move the decimal two places to the left. For example, the decimal form of 10 percent is 0.1. Then, to calculate what 10 percent of is, say, 250 students, simply multiply the number of students by 0.1. (Source: sciencing.com)

### Divide

To calculate percentages, start by writing the number you want to turn into a percentage over the total value so you end up with a fraction. Then, turn the fraction into a decimal by dividing the top number by the bottom number. Finally, multiply the decimal by 100 to find the percentage.

### Number

Remember that in decimal multiplication, you multiply as if there were no decimal points, and the answer will have as many “decimal digits” to the right of the decimal point as the total number of decimal digits of all of the factors. So when you multiply 0.7 × 80, think of multiplying 7 × 80 = 560. Since 0.7 has one decimal digit, and 80 has none, the answer has one decimal digit: 56.0 Thus, 0.7 × 80 = 56.
