How to Add 8 Percent to a Number

Number

The first step in increasing a number by a percentage is to convert the percent to a decimal. The easiest way to do this is move the decimal point two points to the left. For example, 30 percent as a decimal is 0.3, and 50 percent as a decimal is 0.5. If you have a calculator with a percent key (%), enter your number and press % to convert the percent to a decimal (you may have to press the = key on some models). Another way to work out the decimal is to remember that 100 percent is 1, because it is the whole of something. This means 50 percent is one-half (0.5), 25 percent is one-quarter (0.25), 75 percent is three-quarters (0.75) and so on. The concept of percent increase is basically the amount of increase from the original number to the final number in terms of 100 parts of the original. An increase of 5 percent would indicate that, if you split the original value into 100 parts, that value has increased by an additional 5 parts. So if the original value increased by 14 percent, the value would increase by 14 for every 100 units, 28 by every 200 units and so on. To make this even more clear, we will get into an example using the percent increase formula in the next section. 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.
