Taking a percent of a number? Trying to figure out the result? Convert the percent to a decimal and multiply it by the number! This tutorial will show you how!
Want to solve a percent proportion? Just use the means extremes property of proportions to cross multiply! Solve for the variable, and you have your answer! Learn how with this tutorial.
A part is some percent of a whole. Trying to calculate the percent? Use a percent proportion to solve! This tutorial will show you how!
The means-extremes property of proportions allows you to cross multiply, taking the product of the means and setting them equal to the product of the extremes. This property comes in handy when you're trying to solve a proportion. Watch this tutorial to learn more!
A proportion is just an equation where two ratios are equal, and each piece of the proportion has a special name. This tutorial will teach you those names, and this will help you understand cross multiplication when you learn it later!
