A percent is the same as a fraction, but out of 100 .
Write it exactly as you say it:
Find \(\displaystyle{5}\%\) of \(\displaystyle{200}\)
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{5}}}{{{100}}}}\times{200}\)
\(\displaystyle={10}\)
You can also realise that \(\displaystyle{5}\%\) of \(\displaystyle{100}\) is \(\displaystyle{5}\)
so \(\displaystyle{5}\%\) of \(\displaystyle{200}\) will be \(\displaystyle{10},\)
Not exactly what you’re looking for?

Percentage mean upon 100, so \(\displaystyle{x}\%={\frac{{{x}}}{{{100}}}}\)
Here it is \(\displaystyle{5}\%\) of \(\displaystyle{200}\) , wherever there is an "of" simply multiply
\(\displaystyle{5}\%\ \text{ of }\ {200}={\frac{{{5}}}{{{100}}}}\times{200}\)
You are left with
\(\displaystyle{5}\times{2}\)
\(\displaystyle{10}\)
That means
\(\displaystyle{5}\%\ \text{ of }\ {200}={10}\)
