5% is the same as 5 divided by 100 (or 5/100). So 5% of a number is XXXXX of that number, or 5/100 times the number.
Hence 5% of 225 = 5/100 * 225 = 1125/100 = 11.25
Similarly 5% of 60 = 5/100 * 60 = 300/100 = 3
If you need a chart, post the list of numbers you want to find the 5% of and will post back the chart.
Hope this helps.
I can tell you a very easy way to figure percentages.
Take 100 and ten percent of it is 10
1000 ten percent of it is 100.
All you have to do is move the decimal point over one digit.
To figure 5% just halve the 10%
10% of 142464 is 14246.4 and half of that is 7123.2 and is equal 5%
Does that make it easer or do you need a chart?
OK. Here is an image file which you can save and print. Take a look at it and tell me if you still need it in word.
