How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 4.9% of 1/4?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

4.9 / 100 = Part / 1/4

Cross multiply:

4.9 x 1/4 = 100 x Part, or

1.225 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 1.225 / 100 = 0.049

2) 4.9 is what percent of 1/4?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 4.9 / 1/4

Cross multiply:

% x 1/4 = 4.9 x 100

Divide by 1/4 and get the percentage:

% = 4.9 x 100 / 1/4 = 1960%
