See the solutions to these problems just after the percentage calculator below.

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

^{2.9} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{24}

Cross multiply:

2.9 x 24 = 100 x Part, or

69.6 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{69.6} / _{100} = 0.696

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

^{%} / _{100} = ^{2.9} / _{24}

Cross multiply:

% x 24 = 2.9 x 100

Divide by 24 and get the percentage:

% = ^{2.9 x 100} / _{24} = 12.083333333333%
