**What is 10 percent of 100 + Solution with Free Steps**

**10% of 100 is equivalent to 10. This solution may be calculated by multiplying the fraction 0.10 and number 100. **

The calculation of 10% of 100 is useful in many applications. Let us say that you school is **arranging a field trip** to a hill station but due to scarcity of funds only the **top 10% of students** will be taken from each class comprising of **100 students**. Now since you know that 10% of 100 equals 10, you will quickly jump to the conclusion that only **10 students will go** on the field trip out of 100.

In this article, our aim is to find the **10 percent of 100** which is a percentage value.

**What Is 10 percent of 100?**

**10 percent of 100 equals 10. This solution can be obtained by multiplying the factor 0.10 with 100.**

The solution to the problem of 10% of 100 can be obtained through the multiplication of the fractional value 1/10 with the number 100 which is then further simplified to obtain the final answer that is 10. We can calculate the percentage values by following such simple arithmetic steps.

**How To Calculate ****10****% of ****100****?**

We can calculate the 10% value of 100 by following some simple arithmetic steps given below:

**Step 1**

Firstly, depicting **10 percent of 100** in the form of a **mathematical ****equation** as:

**= ****10****% x ****100**

**Step 2**

Replacing the 1/100 fractional value with % sign, above expression changes:

**= ****1****0**** x ( 1 / ****100** **) x ****10****0**

**Step 3**

Using the arithmetic simplification:

**= (**** 1****0 x ****10****0** **) / 100**

Multiplying 10 and 100:

**= ****100****0 / 1****00**

Dividing 1000 by 100:

**= ****10**

The following pie chart shows **10 percent of 100**.

Figure 1: Pie Chart of **10 percent of 100**

The above figure shows **two parts**. The **orange slice** of the pie chart shows the **10% value** of a hundred, which is equal to the value of 10 on an absolute scale. The **green slice** of the pie chart shows the **90% remaining value** of a hundred, which is equal to 90 on an absolute scale. The total area of the pie chart is equal to 100.

The method in which we have to find a depiction of a given unique number in such a way that it could be divided into **100 fractions** is known as the **percentage method**. A percentage is nothing but a **ratio of two numerals**. It’s a dimensionless quantity.

Therefore, **10 percent of 100 is equivalent to ****10**.
