    Answer:

    Multiply the original amount by the decimal equivalent of the percentage.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    A “percent” is literally “per 100”, so to make a calculation you just divide the value by 100 to get the decimal value. That is then applied to the original amount to obtain the amount desired.

    8.25100=0.0825

    0.0825×540=44.55
