What is the EASIEST way to calculate percentages????
I’m so terrible at math and no matter how many times somebody explains it , i won’t ever understand how to calculate percentages. What is the EASIEST way to learn how?
Ex: What is 34% of 364
Things like that, everybody has their own way on explaining it and it never makes sense to me.

What does this have to do with personal finance?

Try typing '34% of 364' into Google.

The way I do it is firstly look at the sum and guess roughly, 34% is about a third so looking at around 120, that gives me a guide, then I do 10 percent 3 times so 3 x 36.4 which is 109.2 then add 4 percent which is 14.56 giving you 123.76

1% of 100 is 1
10 % of 100 is 10
1% of 634 is 6.34
10% of 634 is 63.40
I hope this helps

multiply. in your example == 34.0% ==> .34 (notice how the decimal point moved over 2 places) x 364. do on paper or a calculator.Source(s): I like math. Go figure.

Percent means divided by 100. "Percent of" means times 1/100. Example: 34% of 364 is 34 divided by 100 times 364 or 34/100 times 364.

ask your teacher to show you how to do that

'of' means 'times', 34% is .34 - so in your example, would be .34 times 364

To determine the percent of a number do the following steps: Multiply the number by the percent (e.g. 87 * 68 = 5916) Divide the answer by 100 (Move decimal point two places to the left) (e.g. 5916/100 = 59.16) Round to the desired precision (e.g. 59.16 rounded to the nearest whole number = 59)
Let's try your example. 364 times 34 is 12376 Divide by 100 (or just move the decimal 2 to the left) and you get 123.76.
Let's do an easy one, what is 50% of 100? 50 or course.
100 x 50 = 5000. After the decimal move 50.00
