Even if you can't find a percentage key, you can calculate percentages on any calculator. Some calculators don't have a % key. For example, if you wanted to calculate 15% of $200.00, multiply $200.00 times .15. That would give you $30.00. If you look at the percentage rate (25% for example) just put a decimal point in front of that percentage and use it in the calculation as I did with the 15% above. That 25% would be .25 used in this manner. 75% would be .75 and so forth.
