## How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

### 1) What is 2.9% of 1/4?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{2.9} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{1/4}

Cross multiply:

2.9 x 1/4 = 100 x Part, or

0.725 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{0.725} / _{100} = 0.029

% x 1/4 = 2.9 x 100

Divide by 1/4 and get the percentage:

% = ^{2.9 x 100} / _{1/4} = 1160%
