**Example 1**

Which number corresponds to 58 % from 240.2591? Reduce to 4 decimal digits.

Result - 139.3503.

**Example 2**

How many percent is 258 from 457.2578. Reduce to 6 decimal digits.

Result - 56.423313 %.

**Example 3**

Add 27 % to 534. Reduce to 2 decimal digits.

Result- 678.18.

**Example 4**

Deduct 18 % from 3587.4578. Reduce to 4 decimal digits.

Result - 2941.7154.

**What number corresponds to 18 % from 450?**

1. Deduce the coefficient: 450 / 100 = 4.5

2. Get the final value: 4.5 х 18 = 81

Result: 81.

**How many percent is 45 from 500?**

1. Deduce the coefficient: 500 / 45 = 11.1111

2. Get the final value: 100 % / 11.1111 = 9

Result: 9

**Add 12 % to 572**

1. Deduce the coefficient: 572 / 100 = 5.72

2. Get the number equal to 12 %: 12 % x 5.72 = 68.64м

3. Get the final value: 572 + 68.64 = 640.64

Result: 640.64

**Deduct 45 % from 2870**

1. Deduce the coefficient: 2870 / 100 = 28.7

2. Get the number equal to 45 %: 45 x 28.7 = 1291.5

3. Get the final value: 2870 - 1291.5 = 1578.5

Result: 1578.5

The origins of percentage calculations go back to ancient Babylon. Translated from Latin, percentage means "per hundred" or "from hundred". By means of cuneiform tablets made by Babylonians that survived until the present day, it was easy to find out the sum of yield.

The second hypothesis of percentage origins leads us to India. Indian accountants calculated percentage using the rule of three based on proportion.

The third, and, perhaps, the most reliable story, arrived to us from ancient Rome. Percentage emergence was provoked when the senate established the maximum allowed sum of money to be collected from debtor by creditor in excess of the debt amount.
