There is Two ways of working this out.

Lets say you have to work out 20% of 9450, 

= 9450/1 x 20/100

= 1890

so 20% of 9450 is 1890

If you needed to work out the percentage of a test e.g: you got 45 out of 60

the equation is then 45/60 x 100

Hope this helped :D

Try and turn the percentage into a fraction and see if it helps.
