How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 3% of 55000?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

3 / 100 = Part / 55000

Cross multiply:

3 x 55000 = 100 x Part, or

165000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 165000 / 100 = 1650

2) 3 is what percent of 55000?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 3 / 55000

Cross multiply:

% x 55000 = 3 x 100

Divide by 55000 and get the percentage:

% = 3 x 100 / 55000 = 0.0054545454545455%
