# A new way...

I have another way of solving percent problems.

For me it's easier:

**how to find out how much 30 percent of 1060 is:**

The first thing I do is to find out how much one percent of 1060 is.

In order to do that you just divide 1060 : 100 = 10.6

Now I want to find how much 30 percent is.

(10.6 times 30 = 318)

30% = 318.

In order to find 70% of 1060, you need to subtract

30% (318) from 1060.

(1060–318 = 742)

I am surprised about how much space it took me to write this down.

On the paper it takes just 30 sec.

Hope it helped:-)
