Hi, psychicx.

For the percentages:

You ask in general:

How to find x percent of y?

It's simple.

I'll explain it in 2 steps:

1. Muliply x * y.

2. Divide the result by 100.

For your question we get:

51000 thousand dolars =51000*1000=51.000.000$

1. 8*51.000.000=408.000.000

2. 408.000.000:100=4.080.000$

So 8% of 51,000 thousand dolars is 4,080,000$.

You can use every calculator to calculate percentages.

So 8% of 51000 is 4080 (dollars)

Welcome!

I have an online Percentage Calculator - it has explanations for you as well. A bit of practice, and you will be doing them in your head.
