Convert dollar to percent

You can convert a dollar amount to a percentage by following these steps:
Step Example
Determine the amount you would like to contribute per paycheck $45

Multiply dollar amount by the number of paychecks you receive in 1 year

  • 52 paychecks if paid weekly
  • 26 paychecks if paid every other week
$45 x 26 = $1,170
Divide total contribution amount from previous step by annual salary

$1,170 ÷ $30,000 = 3.9%
