How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 2.9% of 350000?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

2.9 / 100 = Part / 350000

Cross multiply:

2.9 x 350000 = 100 x Part, or

1015000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 1015000 / 100 = 10150

2) 2.9 is what percent of 350000?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 2.9 / 350000

Cross multiply:

% x 350000 = 2.9 x 100

Divide by 350000 and get the percentage:

% = 2.9 x 100 / 350000 = 0.00082857142857143%
