# What number is 3/4% of 16?

Percent means "per hundred." For example, 25% means 25 per hundred, which is $\text{25"/"100}$. So $\text{3"/"4}$% means $\text{3"/"4}$ per hundred, which is $\text{3/4"/"100}$. So multiply 16 times 3/4 then divide by 100.
$\text{16}$ x $\text{3/4"/"100}$ = $\text{12"/"100}$ = $\text{0.12}$
$\text{16}$ x $\text{3"/"4}$ $\div$ $\text{100}$ = $\text{48"/"4}$ $\div$ $\text{100}$ = $\text{12" -: 100}$ = $\text{0.12}$
