    Your answer would be 15%, or a fifteenth, of 11,903. It's just that simple.

    In other words, for every 100 in 11,903, fifteen would be included.

    A quick way to do this without a calculator is to break up the fifteen percent into easily calculatable units. For example: 15% = 10%+5% (5% is just 10%/2) so, 11903 *.1 = 1190.3 Divide this result by 2 to get 5% 1190.3/2 = 595.15 Add the two results 1190.3 + 595.15 = 1785.45 If you are quick at halving numbers than you can find a percentage of any number
