What is 20 times 6 percent?

Here we will show you two different yet similar ways of calculating 20 times 6 percent (20 x 6%). The idea is to show you different ways of calculating 20 times 6 percent so you will have a good understanding of the underlying process of multiplying any number with any percent.

We start by converting 6 percent to a decimal number by dividing 6 by 100 and then we multiply that decimal number by 20. Here is the math to illustrate:

6 / 100 = 0.06
20 x 0.06 = 1.2

The reason we divide 6 by 100 above is because 6 percent means per 100. You can actually divide by 100 after you multiply 20 by 6 and get the same answer. Again, here is the math to illustrate:

20 x 6 = 120
120 / 100 = 1.2

The key is to remember is that "percent" in 6 percent means per hundred and you have to adjust for that with problems like this. To summarize, here is 20 times 6 percent with the answer:

20 x 6 percent = 1.2
