See the solutions to these problems just after the percentage calculator below.

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

^{1.5} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{1/2}

Cross multiply:

1.5 x 1/2 = 100 x Part, or

0.75 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{0.75} / _{100} = 0.015

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

^{%} / _{100} = ^{1.5} / _{1/2}

Cross multiply:

% x 1/2 = 1.5 x 100

Divide by 1/2 and get the percentage:

% = ^{1.5 x 100} / _{1/2} = 300%
