## How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

### 1) What is 1.5% of 1/6?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{1.5} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{1/6}

Cross multiply:

1.5 x 1/6 = 100 x Part, or

0.25 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{0.25} / _{100} = 0.015

### 2) 1.5 is what percent of 1/6?

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{1.5} / _{1/6}

Cross multiply:

% x 1/6 = 1.5 x 100

Divide by 1/6 and get the percentage:

% = ^{1.5 x 100} / _{1/6} = 900%
