## How to Multiply Percentages

Before multiplying a percentage by another %, both percentages must be converted into decimals or fractions.

### 1. Convert into Decimal

Decide if you wish to convert both percentages into decimals or fractions by taking the math problem. This example will demonstrate both conversions so that you can see it both ways.

#### Decimal numbers:

Convert the percentages into decimals if the math equation is $$35\% × 32\%$$.

$$35\% = 0.35$$

$$32\% = 0.32$$

#### Fractions:

Convert the percentages into fractions if the arithmetic problem is $$35\% × 32\%$$.

$$35\% = \dfrac{35}{100} = \dfrac{7}{20}$$

$$32\% = \dfrac{32}{100} = \dfrac{8}{25}$$

### 2. Substitute

Substitute the new numbers into the equation after converting the percentages to decimals or fractions.

#### For Decimal

$$0.35 ×0.32 = ?$$

#### For fractions

$$\dfrac{7}{20} × \dfrac{8}{25} = ?$$

### 3. Final Step

The final step is to perform the multiplication operation and combine the two numbers to produce the result. Remember to see if you can reduce the final solution if you’re using fractions.

#### Decimal conversion:

$$0.35 × 0.32 = 0.112$$

#### Fractions:

$$\dfrac{7}{20} × \dfrac{8}{25} = \dfrac{56}{500} = \dfrac{14}{125}$$

## Examples

Example 1: A shopkeeper of women’s dresses is offering 40% off on his new dress which is worth $600, how much amount people can save with this discount offer? $$= \dfrac{600 × 40}{100}$$ $$= \dfrac{24000}{100}$$ $$= 240$$ People can save$240 which means for the dress worth $600, people need to pay$600 – $240 =$360.
