    10.41oz is about 0.65lb. Divide 0.65 by 140.40 then multiply by 100.

SOURCE: Calculating Percent savings

Since I don't use the percent sign. Here is instead a MUCH easier way. Divide the price you bought it for (289) by the original price (648). This gives you the percentage that 289 is with respect to 648 if you just read off the first two decimal places. When you divide one number by another it will tell you how many times they 'fit' for the purpose of explaining it. That is also essentially what a percentage is out of 100 parts. so when you divide one number by another, you will get a decimal answer, just multiply it by 100 (or just take the first two decimals) and that is percent saved (percent different). Note that if the first value is LARGER than the second, you will have a percentage of over 100%.

How do I find percentage


Not all calculators have a percentage key. I think of percent as per cent, or per 100. You can always multiply by 100 to get the percentage.

For example, 0.23 as a percent would be 0.23 x 100 or 23%.

Good luck.

How do I change a percentage to a fraction


Use this http://www.calculatorsoup.com/calculators/math/percent-to-fraction-calculator.php
OR to work it out yourself.....#

How to convert percent to fraction

  1. Divide the percent by 100 to get decimal number.
  2. Count the number of digits (d) to the right of the decimal point of the decimal number.Example: 2.56 has 2 digits to the right of the decimal point, so d=2.
  3. Calculate the factor (f) for making the decimal number an integer: f = 10 to power d
    Example:
    f = 10 power 2 = 100
  4. Multiply and divide the decimal number x by the factor f: x * f / f = y / f
    Example:
    2.56 * 100 / 100 = 256 / 100
  5. Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the fraction. Example:
    gcd(256,100) = 4
  6. Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by the gcd value: Example:
    256 / 100 = (256/4) / (100/4) = 64/25
Example One percent is equal to one hundredth:
1% = 1/100
So in order to convert percent to fraction, divide the percent by 100% and reduce the fraction.
For example 56% is equal to 56/100 with gcd=4 is equal to 14/25:
56% = 56/100 = 14/25

Casio fx-82ms calculator does not give me an answer when i use the percentage button . example if i type 0.25/ 100% i get 0.25 instead of the right answer 25


Here is a sample of the percentage calculations that the calculator can perform. You will not see among them the conversion from decimals to percentages.
To convert from decimals to percents move the decimal mark 2 places to the right and append the % sign.
To convert from percents to decimals, move the decimal mark 2 places to the left.

Increase percentage of 70 to 200


A percentage increase from a value a to a value b is defined as
Percent increase=(b-a)/a*100 percent.
In your case it is (200-70)/70=1.857. Multiply this number by 100 and append the percent symbol. Thus increase=185.7 percent or about 186 percent.

I have a Casio FX83ES Scientific Calculator and I am trying to work out 1 out of 1700 as a percentage using it. When I type in 1/1700 I get 1 over 1700. I press S<>D and then I get...


1÷1700 expressed as a decimal is 0.000588235, which is 5.882...×10^-4. [NB not 10^4]

To convert this to a percent, remember that "per cent" means "per 100" which also means "divide by 100". To keep the answer correct, if you are dividing by 100 you must also multiply by 100.

The get the answer in percent, you must therefore multiply the previous answer by 100 to get 0.00588235 percent. (or 5.882...×10^-2 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 %
Answer: 85
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 % =
Answer: 90.35 or $90.35
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

Percent to chemistry problems.


Hello

You should ask a question, we cannot guess what you want.

Percent means per 100 or 1/100. So 75% = 75/100 or 0.75. Here are some exemples of percent calculations with %

Percentage (5% of 250)

250 [x] 5 [2nd] % [=] gives 12.5

Ratio (Ratio of 250 to 5)
250 [/] 5 [2nd] [%] [=] gives 5000.

Add-On (5% add-on of 250)
250 [+] 5 [2nd] [%] [=] gives 262.5

Discount (5% discount of 250)
250 [-] 5 [2nd][%] [=] gives 237.5

Some percentages and decimal equivalents
1 = 100% ; 2 = 200%, 3=300%
0.5 = 50%
0.4 =40%
0.1 = 10%
1/3= 0.33333 = 33.33%
1/4 = 0.25 = 25%
2/3= 0.66666 = 66.66%
1/5 =0.2 = 20%
1/8 = 0.125 =12,5 %
Hope it helps.
