What is 130 percent of 70?
00:00:05.912 --> 00:00:12.102
As 130 percent is greater than 100, our number will actually increase.
00:00:12.342 --> 00:00:14.852
The answer must be greater than 70.
00:00:15.872 --> 00:00:22.012
Finding 130 percent of a number is the same as a 30-percent increase.
00:00:23.152 --> 00:00:25.792
We can do this using a couple of methods.
00:00:26.742 --> 00:00:33.092
One way would be to find 30 percent of 70 and then add the answer onto 70.
00:00:34.192 --> 00:00:38.652
In order to calculate 10 percent of any number, we divide by 10.
00:00:39.092 --> 00:00:42.272
Therefore, 10 percent of 70 is equal to seven.
00:00:43.312 --> 00:00:49.142
Multiplying this by three gives us that 30 percent of 70 is equal to 21.
00:00:50.472 --> 00:00:59.292
An alternative method would be to turn 30 percent into a decimal, in this case 0.3, and then multiply by 70.
00:01:00.362 --> 00:01:03.492
This would also give us an answer of 21.
00:01:04.432 --> 00:01:11.142
We can, therefore, calculate 130 percent of 70 by adding 21 to 70.
00:01:12.142 --> 00:01:14.312
This is equal to 91.
00:01:15.532 --> 00:01:20.932
A different method here would be to convert 130 percent into a decimal.
00:01:21.742 --> 00:01:26.932
We know that in order to convert from percentages to decimals, we divide by 100.
00:01:27.482 --> 00:01:31.662
Therefore, 130 percent is the same as 1.3.
00:01:32.692 --> 00:01:36.842
This means that we need to multiply 1.3 by 70.
00:01:38.032 --> 00:01:43.402
This is the same as 1.3 multiplied by 10 multiplied by seven.
00:01:44.302 --> 00:01:48.022
1.3 multiplied by 10 is equal to 13.
00:01:48.242 --> 00:01:51.522
And we are left with 13 multiplied by seven.
00:01:52.592 --> 00:01:55.902
Once again, this gives us an answer of 91.
00:01:56.812 --> 00:02:00.772
130 percent of 70 is 91.
