__Finding
Percentages__

You've heard the commercial about "4 out of 5 dentists
recommending sugarless gum..." so, what *percentage* is this?

We need to find what four fifths of one hundred is.

Using this formula:

B ) 80 percent of 5 equals what number ?

C ) 4 is 80 percent of what number ?

In order to use this calculator, first click the category (A, B or C), then enter the numbers in the first and third boxes, then click CALCULATE.

Percentages get a little trickier when there are many variables involved.

These
type of percentage calculations are made easier by using this calculator which
allows you to input up to 10 numbers. When you click CALCULATE, it will display
the percentages of each amount. As an added bonus, the total and average will
be displayed. For practice, you could use the election example above.**
