I just got done watching National Treasure and at the end of the movie they got 1% of approx. $10 billion. I was never good with percentages in school and I’m curious about how much money Ben/Abigail/Riley received. Can anyone help me out?

$ 10 billion = $ 10,000,000,000 dollars
1 % of $ 10,000,000,000 = 0.01 (10,000,000,000) = $100,000,000
They got a $100 million dollars. I wish I found that treasure.

1% means 1/100 or 1 part of something that has been divided into 100 parts.
So,1% of 10 billion is 10,000,000,000 / 100 * 1 which is equal to 100,000,000.

percent means “per one hundred”,
so x% means x parts out of 100
1%=1 out of 100=1/100=0.01
When they say “x% of a number” it means “x%*that number”.
Thus 1% of 10 billion
= 1%*10,000,000,000
=0.01*10,000,000,000
=100,000,000
=100 million

1 % of 10,000,000,000 =
10,000,000,000 (1 / 100) =
10,000,000,000 / 100 =
100,000,000 = 10^8 = 100 million dollars
*******

1% = 1/100 = 0.01
so 1% 0f 1 billion = 0.01X 1000,000,000
= 10,000,000 (ten million)

100,000,000, just multiply the number by .01 or whatever percent. You always move the decimal place two places to the left. So if it is 1 percent it would be .01.

Work: 1%=.01 of = x (multiply)
.01 X 10,000,000,000 = 100,000,000
