### Methods to calculate "What is 2 percent of 22" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate 2 percent of 22.

- For 100, our answer will be 2
- For 22, our answer will be x
- 100*x = 2*22 (In Step 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- x = 2*22/100 = 44/100 = 0.44

#### Answer: 2 percent of 22 is 0.44

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate 2 percent of 22

- For 100, our answer will be 2
- For 22, our answer will be x
- 100/22 = 2/x (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 2/x = 100/22 or x/2 = 22/100
- x = 22*2/100 = 44/100 = 0.44

#### Answer: 2 percent of 22 is 0.44

#### Method 3: Converting Percentage to Decimal to calculate 2 percent of 22

- Find the decimal equivalent of 2 i.e. 2/100 = 0.02
- Multiply the decimal equivalent (above) to the given number i.e. 22*0.02 = 0.44

#### Answer: 2 percent of 22 is 0.44

### 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. 2% (read as 2 percent) can also be expressed as 2/100 or 2:100.Example: If 2% (2 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 2 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 2*100 (i.e. $200) 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
