It has to be a percent compared to another number, but if you have the other number, then here is how to do it. 1. Put the number you want as percent as a fraction, over the number you are comparing it to (the first number on top is a percent of the bottom number) 2. to the left of it, set up another fraction, with blank over a hundred. 3. Multiply the number on top of the first fraction by 100. 4. Divide this number by the bottom number of the first fraction.
1 is 10 percent of 10
ie
1/10 compared to /100
1x100= 100
100 divided by 10 is 10. the answer is 10%

you divide like for example 3 of 4 you dive 3/4= .75 and then times that by 100 and get 75% Good luck!
