How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 2.5% of 6?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

2.5 / 100 = Part / 6

Cross multiply:

2.5 x 6 = 100 x Part, or

15 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 15 / 100 = 0.15

2) 2.5 is what percent of 6?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 2.5 / 6

Cross multiply:

% x 6 = 2.5 x 100

Divide by 6 and get the percentage:

% = 2.5 x 100 / 6 = 41.666666666667%
