How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 5.3% of 65.99?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

5.3 / 100 = Part / 65.99

Cross multiply:

5.3 x 65.99 = 100 x Part, or

349.747 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 349.747 / 100 = 3.49747

2) 5.3 is what percent of 65.99?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 5.3 / 65.99

Cross multiply:

% x 65.99 = 5.3 x 100

Divide by 65.99 and get the percentage:

% = 5.3 x 100 / 65.99 = 8.0315199272617%
