### Methods to calculate "What is 1 percent of 15" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate 1 percent of 15.

- For 100, our answer will be 1
- For 15, our answer will be x
- 100*x = 1*15 (In Step 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- x = 1*15/100 = 15/100 = 0.15

#### Answer: 1 percent of 15 is 0.15

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate 1 percent of 15

- For 100, our answer will be 1
- For 15, our answer will be x
- 100/15 = 1/x (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 1/x = 100/15 or x/1 = 15/100
- x = 15*1/100 = 15/100 = 0.15

#### Answer: 1 percent of 15 is 0.15

#### Method 3: Converting Percentage to Decimal to calculate 1 percent of 15

- Find the decimal equivalent of 1 i.e. 1/100 = 0.01
- Multiply the decimal equivalent (above) to the given number i.e. 15*0.01 = 0.15

#### Answer: 1 percent of 15 is 0.15

### 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. 1% (read as 1 percent) can also be expressed as 1/100 or 1:100.Example: If 1% (1 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 1 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 1*100 (i.e. $100) 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
