How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 1.1% of 80?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

% / 100 = Part / Whole replace the given values:

1.1 / 100 = Part / 80

Cross multiply:

1.1 x 80 = 100 x Part, or

88 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 88 / 100 = 0.88

2) 1.1 is what percent of 80?

Use again the same percentage formula:

% / 100 = Part / Whole replace the given values:

% / 100 = 1.1 / 80

Cross multiply:

% x 80 = 1.1 x 100

Divide by 80 and get the percentage:

% = 1.1 x 100 / 80 = 1.375%
