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

Final Answer:  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.
