There is not one, if you want to use percentages you must divide it by 100 so it is in the form of a decimal. EXAMPLE .5=50%

### Staples scientific calculator BD-107i

To find percentages on this calculator, or any calculator, you divide one number by the other, and multiply the result by 100.

For example, for 2 out of 5, we type in 2, hit the divide button, type in 5 and hit the equals sign and we will get 0.4. To make this into percentage, we then multiply the answer by 100 to get 40%.

Good luck,

Paul

### Casio fx-82ms calculator does not give me an answer when i use the percentage button . example if i type 0.25/ 100% i get 0.25 instead of the right answer 25

Here is a sample of the percentage calculations that the calculator can perform. You will not see among them the conversion from decimals to percentages.
To convert from decimals to percents move the decimal mark 2 places to the right and append the % sign.
To convert from percents to decimals, move the decimal mark 2 places to the left.   Sep 28, 2013 | Casio FX-82MS Scientific Calculator

### Where is the percentage button?

You can try pressing "alpha" or "2nd" and then pressing the key you saw the percent sign on.

here is a temporary solution in case that doesn't work:to enter a percentage up to write the digits before the tens and ones (if any, and if not, just type a zero), a point, and the last two digits.ex:
• 56%=0.56
• 28%=0.28
• 132%=1.32
• 4243%=42.43

To write down the answer, take all the digits, take off the point, if the percentage is 99% or less, don't write the zero on the right of the period, and add a percent sign.

### I can't figure out how to use percent sign?

If I want 2/5 as a percentage (which is 40%), I would press
 [ /]  [%]
Instead of equal sign, I'll press % sign, which will give the answer as a percentage.
Of course this is a simple calculation. If you want advanced calculations let us know.

### Formula for converting fractions into percentage.

Simplest method
1. divide the top of the fraction by the bottom
2. Then multiply the result by 100
3. add a percent sign to the answer so people know it is a percentage (i.e. per 100)
• e.g. 3/5 *100 = 0.6 * 100 = 60%

Alternative method Since percent means "per 100", you can try to convert the faction to the form ?/100
1. find a number that you can multiple the bottom of the fraction by to get 100
2. multiple both top and bottom of the fraction by that number
3. write down just the top number with the % sign added to the end
• e.g. 3/5 as a percentage
1. we can multiply 5 x 20 to get 100
2. multiple top and bottom by 20 = (3*20)/(5*20) = 60/100 = 60%

I hope this helps and good luck! If you have more questions - ask away! Please take the time to rate this answer.

### Which button i need to use for click button percentage... example 45 + 10%

The percentage sign is the equal sign. Press Shift and =.
However 10% is really 0.10, so it will be easier to work with since using the % usually results in syntax errors.

### Calculating Percent savings

Since I don't use the percent sign. Here is instead a MUCH easier way. Divide the price you bought it for (289) by the original price (648). This gives you the percentage that 289 is with respect to 648 if you just read off the first two decimal places. When you divide one number by another it will tell you how many times they 'fit' for the purpose of explaining it. That is also essentially what a percentage is out of 100 parts. so when you divide one number by another, you will get a decimal answer, just multiply it by 100 (or just take the first two decimals) and that is percent saved (percent different). Note that if the first value is LARGER than the second, you will have a percentage of over 100%.

### PERCENTAGE

Your sum formula will look something like this, if the row you intend to sum is row 5:

=SUM(5:5)

Then of course you can modify it to reflect the percentage you desire:

=SUM(5:5)*.25 or whatever

Note that the equals sign in front of the formula is necessary.
