Before getting started, it might help to briefly review how percentages work:
A percentage is a fraction or a part of a whole. Therefore, when working to find a percentage of a number, you will need to convert the percentage value to a decimal. For example, 25 % is equal to 0.25. You will multiply by the decimal amount to determine the percent. For example 25% of 60 is 0.25 x 60.
