To calculate percentage on a calculator, first find 1% of the number, and multiply this by the percentage that you are trying to find.  Eg: To find 40% of 200; Divide 200 by 100 = 2 and multiply this by 40 = 80

Example. 10 X 10% the 10% converts to .10 you always move the point two places to the left of the last number. So 10% of 10 is 1. If you need further explanation just ask me, or give me the problem.

Percent = hundredths
20% = 20/100 = 0.20
0.2*6000 = 20% of 6000

What you call 0.2 is a change factor.
