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.
