Find 20% of 5.

To determine the percent of a number do the following steps:

- Multiply the number by the percent (e.g. 20 x 5 = 100)
- Divide the answer by 100 (Move decimal point two places to the left) (e.g. 100/100 = 1)
- Round to the desired precision if needed.

**Therefore 20% of 5 is 1.**

Word *percent *comes from Italian "*per cento*" mening "for a hunderd". That is any percentage is a fraction with denominator 100. In general

`x%=x/100`

Hope this helps.

First you need to know that a percentage is just a differently written rational number e.g. `5%=5/100=0.05,` `98.3%=98.3/100=0.983.`

Hence in your case `20%=20/100=0.2.`

And to get 20% of 5 you simply multiply those two numbers `0.2*5=1.`

**So 20% of 5 is 1.**

20/100 x 5 = 1

We need to find 20% of 5.

This signifies a multiplication problem.

20/100 x 5 = 1

Therefore, 20% of 5 is 1. This makes sense because 20/100 is really just 1/5. And 1/5 of 5 is obviously 1. You can check this by adding 1 five times to see if yo get 4 (you do!)

i like to convert my percentages to decimals.

so 20% is the same as .2

when you see of, it means multiplication, so you have

.2 * 5= 1

`20/100=n/5`

`100=100n`

`n=1`

``

20% of 5 20% can be written as a decimal which would be .2 so just multiply 5 by .2

`5xx.2=1`
