 Percent of a number

What is 12% of 450% of 40% of 6% of 110% of 150?
The question may look very confusing or even scary but it is quite simple to solve. 
Convert all the percent to decimal and multiply all the numbers.
12%  =  0.12
450%  =  4.5
40%  =  0.4
6%  =  0.06
110%  =  1.1
0.12 × 4.5 × 0.4 × 0.06 × 1.1 × 150 =  2.1384

The order of the decimal does not matter since all the numbers are being multiplied anyway.
