In this example: .3 * 100 = 30 The answer is 30 percent. This works for all numbers including very small numbers like 5 thousandths. Five thousandths = .005 = .5 percent (.005 x 100 = .5) Percent is out of a hundred, so 5 percent is equal to 5/100 5/100 times 60 is equal to 300/100, which is equal to 3. So five percent of sixty is three 5 decimeters is equal to: . 500 millimeters 50 centimeters .5 meters .05 decameters (dekameters) .005 hectometers .0005 kilometers   x - 0.5% = 500x - .005 = 500x - .005 + .005 = 500 + .005x = 500.005Check:x = 500.005500.005 - 0.5% = 500500.005 - .005 = 500500 = 500So x - 0.5% = 500 when x is .005. Taking a percent of a percentTaking an example: five percent of 100 is 5. Five percent of 5 is 0.25.Therefore, 5 percent of 5 percent is equal to 0.25 percent or 0.0025 (1/400).As a ratio5 percent is 100% of 5 percent. ###### Math and ArithmeticPercentages, Fractions, and Decimal ValuesEcosystemsAlgebraWeight and MassCalculus Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC.
