How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 4.3% of 500?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

4.3 / 100 = Part / 500

Cross multiply:

4.3 x 500 = 100 x Part, or

2150 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 2150 / 100 = 21.5

2) 4.3 is what percent of 500?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 4.3 / 500

Cross multiply:

% x 500 = 4.3 x 100

Divide by 500 and get the percentage:

% = 4.3 x 100 / 500 = 0.86%
