Key Questions

It depends on the question, but in general, divide into 100 pieces and extract the required pieces.
Example, what is 23% of $743?
Divide 743 into 100 equal pieces, and then times 23 because you need to extract 23 pieces.

Think of a big pie, apple/blueberry the choice is yours. And think of the whole pie like 100%. Then each slice is a proportion.
So if you take a great big slice of pie e.g. half (1/2) the whole pie then you have taken 50%.
If you take a smaller piece, say you cut the pie into three then each piece is 1/3 of the pie and is 33.3%
If you cut the pie into 4, each slice is 1/4 and worth 25%.I hope that helps you to understand the underlying concept... if you have a specific question you want to ask then I'll be happy to help  it's hard to know exactly what you need to know from the question you have asked.

Rememdber that "per" means "divided by", and "cent" means 100, so "percent" means "divided by 100" or "out of 100."
If a question says "A is a 29% of B," then you can write
#A=29/100 B# .
I hope that this was helpful.
