How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 40% of 24?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

40 / 100 = Part / 24

Cross multiply:

40 x 24 = 100 x Part, or

960 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 960 / 100 = 9.6

2) 40 is what percent of 24?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 40 / 24

Cross multiply:

% x 24 = 40 x 100

Divide by 24 and get the percentage:

% = 40 x 100 / 24 = 166.66666666667%
