How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 12% of 85.99?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

12 / 100 = Part / 85.99

Cross multiply:

12 x 85.99 = 100 x Part, or

1031.88 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 1031.88 / 100 = 10.3188

2) 12 is what percent of 85.99?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 12 / 85.99

Cross multiply:

% x 85.99 = 12 x 100

Divide by 85.99 and get the percentage:

% = 12 x 100 / 85.99 = 13.955111059426%
