How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 1.6% of 1900?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

1.6 / 100 = Part / 1900

Cross multiply:

1.6 x 1900 = 100 x Part, or

3040 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 3040 / 100 = 30.4

2) 1.6 is what percent of 1900?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 1.6 / 1900

Cross multiply:

% x 1900 = 1.6 x 100

Divide by 1900 and get the percentage:

% = 1.6 x 100 / 1900 = 0.084210526315789%
