How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 3.7% of 1500?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

3.7 / 100 = Part / 1500

Cross multiply:

3.7 x 1500 = 100 x Part, or

5550 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 5550 / 100 = 55.5

2) 3.7 is what percent of 1500?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 3.7 / 1500

Cross multiply:

% x 1500 = 3.7 x 100

Divide by 1500 and get the percentage:

% = 3.7 x 100 / 1500 = 0.24666666666667%
