How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 3.5% of 60000?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

3.5 / 100 = Part / 60000

Cross multiply:

3.5 x 60000 = 100 x Part, or

210000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 210000 / 100 = 2100

2) 3.5 is what percent of 60000?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 3.5 / 60000

Cross multiply:

% x 60000 = 3.5 x 100

Divide by 60000 and get the percentage:

% = 3.5 x 100 / 60000 = 0.0058333333333333%
