### Methods to calculate "What is 96 percent of 102" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate 96 percent of 102.

- For 100, our answer will be 96
- For 102, our answer will be x
- 100*x = 96*102 (In Step 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- x = 96*102/100 = 9792/100 = 97.92

#### Answer: 96 percent of 102 is 97.92

- For 100, our answer will be 96
- For 102, our answer will be x
- 100/102 = 96/x (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 96/x = 100/102 or x/96 = 102/100
- x = 102*96/100 = 9792/100 = 97.92

#### Answer: 96 percent of 102 is 97.92

#### Method 3: Converting Percentage to Decimal to calculate 96 percent of 102

- Find the decimal equivalent of 96 i.e. 96/100 = 0.96

### Percentage examples

Percentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 96% (read as 96 percent) can also be expressed as 96/100 or 96:100.Example: If 96% (96 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 96 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 96*100 (i.e. $9600) are invested in stocks.

### Percentage sign (%)

The percent (per cent i.e. per hundred) sign % is the standard symbol to indicate a percentage, to signify a number or ratio as a fraction of 100. Related signs include the permille (per thousand) sign ‰ and the permyriad (per ten thousand) sign ‱ (also known as a basis point), which indicate that a number is divided by one thousand or ten thousand, respectively.### Scholarship programs to learn math
