    Is the question simply asking to find 14% of 90? Because 600 isn't

    Percent means per 100, so 100% of a value is the value itself. One percent is the value times 1/100, so 14% is the value times 14/100.

    \[\frac{14}{100}*90=\frac{14*90}{100}\]

    100% of 90 = 90 10% of 90 = 9 1% of 90 = 0.9 14% of 90 = 1*9 + 4*0.9 = 12.6
