*One of the things that I learned how to do this year in math class was to calculate the percentage of something*I made a video using the calculator on my phone today to see if I could prove that I know what I am doing when it comes to calculating percentages:

*So did I do it right?*I THINK I did. What I always try to remind myself is that I'm multiplying by a two digit decimal number. So if I want seven percent of something, I multiply by .07. That makes sense because percent means "a part of 100," and two digit decimals represent "hundredths."
