Percent means out of 100.

1.  To find 1% of a number move the decimal to the left two places (divide by 100).  In this case .09 is 1%.

2. You need 9%, so you multiply .09 by 9.  (.09)(9) = 0.81

9% implies 9 in 100 or 9/100 = 0.09

9% of 9 is equal to (9/100)*9 = 0.09*9 = 0.81

9% of 9 is 0.81.

We need to find out the value : 9% of 9 .

The word "of" signifies multiplication.

9% needs to be written as a fraction --> 9/100

Putting that all together we get : (9)/(100) xx 9

Once we multiply this out, we get 81/100

This answer makes sense because 100% of 9  is 9 so 9% must be significantly less than that.

9% means nine out of hundred or 9/100

therefore 9% of 9 = 9*9/100 = 0.81

9% of 9 is 0.81
