How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 15% of 1000?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

15 / 100 = Part / 1000

Cross multiply:

15 x 1000 = 100 x Part, or

15000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 15000 / 100 = 150

2) 15 is what percent of 1000?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 15 / 1000

Cross multiply:

% x 1000 = 15 x 100

Divide by 1000 and get the percentage:

% = 15 x 100 / 1000 = 1.5%
