what is 92% of 12?
If the percentage is less than 100% just put a decimal point in
front of it and multiply the number by it.
e.g. 12 multiplied by .92 = 11.04
If the percentage is larger than 100% e.g. 120%, just put a
decimal point after the 1 e.g. 1.20 and then multiply your
number by that ammount.
e.g. 120% of 15 = 15 multiplied by 1.20 = 18
I find this easy to do, with or without a calculator.
Hope it helps.
= 92/100 x 12
= 11 1/25
multiply 12 by 92/100
12x 92/100= 11.04
the same result if you’ll do it this way
12 x .92= 11.04
The I take a calculator and type 12*92%=
