A percentage of what?  0.15 is 15% of 1, 1.5% of 10 and 0.15% of 100.
i agree with skids..0.15 is a percentage

This easy way to work our percentages may help.

Multiply the two figures and bring the decimal point in two places from the right.

8 percent of 14 would be 8 x 14 = 112 = 1.12

13 percent of 52 would be 13 x 52 = 676 = 6.67

0.15 is 15 hundredths, which is the same as 15%.

To use Caramba2422's formula on a calculator....

Multiply the 2 numbers together then divide by 100!!

If you mean 0.15 of 1 unit you multiply by 100

i.e. 0.15 x 100 = 15

Ans 15%
