How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 200% of 12?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

200 / 100 = Part / 12

Cross multiply:

200 x 12 = 100 x Part, or

2400 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 2400 / 100 = 24

2) 200 is what percent of 12?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 200 / 12

Cross multiply:

% x 12 = 200 x 100

Divide by 12 and get the percentage:

% = 200 x 100 / 12 = 1666.6666666667%
