How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 4.4% of 170?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

4.4 / 100 = Part / 170

Cross multiply:

4.4 x 170 = 100 x Part, or

748 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 748 / 100 = 7.48

2) 4.4 is what percent of 170?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 4.4 / 170

Cross multiply:

% x 170 = 4.4 x 100

Divide by 170 and get the percentage:

% = 4.4 x 100 / 170 = 2.5882352941176%
