**20 percent of 100 comes to be 14. Multiply the factor 0.20 by 70 to get this answer **

You may come across a situation where you could benefit from a normal computation. Imagine you gave a math exam, and now you want to know how many MCQ problems you have attempted correctly if you earned a grade of **20% **on the maths test that had **100** problems. You must be familiar with the computation of** 20% of 100,** in order to figure out the if your results are good or bad. Considering our previous assumption, you only managed to get **20 **MCQs correct out of **100 **which sounds quite concerning**.** Nevertheless, the situation can be of numerous kinds and such problems can be useful in your daily routines.

To further explain the concepts and solution, an **in-depth illustration **is given below which will help you to understand how we calculate 20 percent of 100.

**What is 20 percent of 100?**

**The 20 percent of 100 is equal to the number 20. To get this answer, just multiply the fraction 0.20 by the number 100.**

The same answer can be achieved by taking the fraction **20/100** and multiplying it by **100.** The final solution will come out to be **20 **when you solve the equation.

**How To Calculate 20 percent of 100?**

The following steps are taken in finding the percent value of the given quantity:

**Step 1**

Firstly, describe **20 percent of** **100** in terms of a **mathematical phrase**:

**20 percent of** 100 = 20% x 100

**Step 2**

We know that **percentage sign %** is equal to **1/100**.

Use the above equation thus,

**20 percent of** 100 = (20 / 100) x 100

**Step 3**

Next, simplifying the above equation gives:

**20 percent of** 100 = (20 x 100) / 100

**Step 4**

Taking **10** as the common factor and **eliminating** it from the fraction:

**20 percent of** 100 = (2 x 100) / 10

**Step 5**

Upon further solving and simplifying the above equation we get the **final answer:**

**20 percent of** 100 = (2 x 10) =** 20**

Therefore, **20 percent of** **100**** is equivalent to 20**.

The pie chart shown below can help you visualize what is** 20 percent of** **100.**

In the above diagram, the **orange part **shows **20% of 100.** The circle is of **100 portions **(highlighted in green) out of which **20 **percent is emphasized. The **green portion** represents the remaining **80 **parts **of 100.**
