How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 2.4% of 800?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

2.4 / 100 = Part / 800

Cross multiply:

2.4 x 800 = 100 x Part, or

1920 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 1920 / 100 = 19.2

2) 2.4 is what percent of 800?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 2.4 / 800

Cross multiply:

% x 800 = 2.4 x 100

Divide by 800 and get the percentage:

% = 2.4 x 100 / 800 = 0.3%
