## Introduction

This lesson will teach you how to find percent of a number. This is a very easy topic as long as you do it step by step and follow the basic rules of finding percentages. So let's begin!## Finding Percentages

Let's say that we have the following problem:15% of $265

In order to find what the answer is, we need to make the 15% into a number. We do that by converting it into a decimal number! So, 15% becomes .15!

Now all we have to do is multiply .15 by $265 to find our answer!

$265x.15 equals $39.75

That means 15% of $265 is $39.75!

Now wasn't that just a piece of cake?
