See the solutions to these problems just after the percentage calculator below.

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{5.5} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{23.99}

Cross multiply:

5.5 x 23.99 = 100 x Part, or

131.945 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{131.945} / _{100} = 1.31945

Use again the same percentage formula:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{5.5} / _{23.99}

Cross multiply:

% x 23.99 = 5.5 x 100

Divide by 23.99 and get the percentage:

% = ^{5.5 x 100} / _{23.99} = 22.926219258024%
