    My preferred way of doing this is to make the 100 billion and 14 trillion into a fraction, i.e.

    100,000,000,000/14,000,000,000,000

    Then cancel as many zeros as possible, to give

    1/140

    To turn this into a percentage you multiply by 100, which gives

    100/140

    which cancels down to

    10/14

    This is about 0.7%.
