How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 17% of 26?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

17 / 100 = Part / 26

Cross multiply:

17 x 26 = 100 x Part, or

442 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 442 / 100 = 4.42

2) 17 is what percent of 26?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 17 / 26

Cross multiply:

% x 26 = 17 x 100

Divide by 26 and get the percentage:

% = 17 x 100 / 26 = 65.384615384615%
