## Question:

What is 35 percent of 45?

## Finding the Percent of a Number

Percents are special numbers in math that represent part of a whole. Sometimes you will need to find the 'percent of' a number. A percent equation is the formula you would use to solve these types of problems.

## Answer and Explanation:

35% of 45 is equal to 15.75

This answer can be found by using the percent equation formula below:

- percent * whole = part

Before you can plug the numbers into the formula, the percent needs to be converted to a decimal by moving the decimal point two places to the left (35% = 0.35). Then solve using whichever multiplication method you prefer:

- 0.35 * 45 = 15.75
