How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 1.7% of 15?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

1.7 / 100 = Part / 15

Cross multiply:

1.7 x 15 = 100 x Part, or

25.5 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 25.5 / 100 = 0.255

2) 1.7 is what percent of 15?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 1.7 / 15

Cross multiply:

% x 15 = 1.7 x 100

Divide by 15 and get the percentage:

% = 1.7 x 100 / 15 = 11.333333333333%
