Percent means per hundred. (Think cent as in century). So 1 percent is the same as 1 divided by 100.

To find 1 percent of a number, simply multiply the percentage by that number. For example, to find 1 percent of 42 you would write:

42 × (1÷100)

Which equals 0.42.

You can also figure out 5%, 95% and 200% of 42 like so:

42 × (5÷100) = 2.25

42 × (95÷100) = ??

42 × (200÷100) = ??

The last two are left as an exercise. A basic calculator can be used to help with percentages.
