What’s 1% of \$10 billion?

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 Of 10 Billion

• 1 Percent Of 10 Billion

• 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
