I'm going to show you how to find percentages. There are 2 ways of finding percentages, 2 different methods you'll want to use. One, how to find the percent of a number, I've done another video on that so you can look at that one, or in this one, I'm going to show you how to calculate the percent as a percent. Let's say, for instance, you took an exam, okay, so the exam is marked out of 80. And let's say you score 60. So, now, what you want to do is to convert this into percentages. So, you want to say, what is my score 60 out of 80 as a percentage? So, if you want to, if I talk you through how to do it, you want to find 60 out of 80 as a percent times 100. So, all you have to do is take your score, divide by the number that the number is out of, in total of and multiply by 100. So, this would give you 75 percent. If you put this into a calculator, this would give you 75%. So, all you have to do to find a percent of a number is you take your, let's say, score or the number that you've got. You divide it by the total, and to put it into a percent, you just need to multiply by 100. So, this is the number that you've got and you put it over the total and times 100. And that's how to find percentages..
