How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 17% of 1400?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

17 / 100 = Part / 1400

Cross multiply:

17 x 1400 = 100 x Part, or

23800 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 23800 / 100 = 238

2) 17 is what percent of 1400?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 17 / 1400

Cross multiply:

% x 1400 = 17 x 100

Divide by 1400 and get the percentage:

% = 17 x 100 / 1400 = 1.2142857142857%
