### Staples scientific calculator BD-107i

To find percentages on this calculator, or any calculator, you divide one number by the other, and multiply the result by 100.

For example, for 2 out of 5, we type in 2, hit the divide button, type in 5 and hit the equals sign and we will get 0.4. To make this into percentage, we then multiply the answer by 100 to get 40%.

Good luck,

Paul

### How do you calculate percentages on the TI 83 Plus?

Sorry, but you cannot calculate percentages at the pressing of a key. The calculator does not have a key for that. You will have to do it yourself.
To convert a decimal result to a percentage, multiply it by 100: MOVE the decimal mark two places to the right.
To convert a percentage into a decimal number, divide the number by 100: MOVE the decimal mark two places to the left.

ok. first things first, percent mens, out of 100. you simply replace the percent with fractions. say you have \$400. your workers get 20% of the money made each day. 20 out of 100=1/5 of 100.so your workers get 1/5 of the money which is 400 divided by 5 wich equals 80. i hope this helps. if you still have trouble, serch on the internet for the formula for calculating percent.

### Acer,Aspire 5720-4663 Math calculator: How does one use the percentage function?

Hi. Try this steps on using your math calculator for the percentage function.

Hope This Helps

Step 1. Note that not all calculators behave the same way as far as the percentage key is concerned. Thus, test the examples in this article on your calculator. If your calculator does not have the percent key or does not behave in the way described here, don't despair - you can still use it to calculate percentages, it's just that you will have to press a few more buttons.
Step 2. Let's calculate a tip on your restaurant bill. Suppose your bill happens to be \$64.35 and you would like to leave 15% tip.
Type the following into your calculator: 64.35 * 15 %
Answer: 9.6525 or \$9.65 after rounding.
Most simple calculators will give an answer right here without having to press the = sign. If yours does not, press = and see if you get the right answer.
Alternatively, you can calculate this percentage by typing in
64.35 * 15 / 100 or 64.35 * 0.15
Thus, you may have observed that all that the percent key did here was division by a hundred.
Step 3. Let's calculate a grade percentage - say you got 34 out of a maximum of 40 points.
To figure out your grade percentage type in: 34 / 40 %
Alternatively, without the percent key: 34 / 40 * 100
Step 4. Let's calculate a sale price on those shoes that originally cost \$139, but are now discounted by 35%.
On your calculator type in: 139 - 35 % =
This calculation is amazingly easy with the percent key! Alternatively, you would first have to calculate what the 35% of the \$139 is and then subtract it from 139:
139 * 35 / 100 = 48.65
139 - 48.65 = 90.35
