What is 20 times 7 percent?

Here we will show you two different yet similar ways of calculating 20 times 7 percent (20 x 7%). The idea is to show you different ways of calculating 20 times 7 percent so you will have a good understanding of the underlying process of multiplying any number with any percent.

We start by converting 7 percent to a decimal number by dividing 7 by 100 and then we multiply that decimal number by 20. Here is the math to illustrate:

7 / 100 = 0.07
20 x 0.07 = 1.4

The reason we divide 7 by 100 above is because 7 percent means per 100. You can actually divide by 100 after you multiply 20 by 7 and get the same answer. Again, here is the math to illustrate:

20 x 7 = 140
140 / 100 = 1.4

The key is to remember is that "percent" in 7 percent means per hundred and you have to adjust for that with problems like this. To summarize, here is 20 times 7 percent with the answer:
