TSQL - Amount * 10% AS PercentOfAmount

Hi Experts,

I have this field:
[Amount]

I am looking for the correct syntax to do a percentage of the [Amount] so something like:
Select
[Amount],
Percent([Amount], * .10) As PercentOfAmount
From TableName

I know this is not correct and that is why I am posting:
Percent([Amount], * .10) As PercentOfAmount


Please help and thanks....

Just multiply the field by the percentage.  Try:
Select 
[Amount], ([Amount] * .10) As PercentOfAmount
From TableName

So, just multiply the number times .10 for ten percent, or is there any numerator / denominator expression that needs to happen?

So I will also need to round

Example:
1525
using:
([Amount] * .10)
gives me:
152.50
I tried:
Round(([Amount] * .10), 2)

but I still get
152.5

I need it to:
153

Please help and thanks

Never mind I found:
ROUND(150.75, 0)
will round to 151

Thanks
