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:

^{5.8} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{5/8}

Cross multiply:

5.8 x 5/8 = 100 x Part, or

3.625 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{3.625} / _{100} = 0.29

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

^{%} / _{100} = ^{5.8} / _{5/8}

Cross multiply:

% x 5/8 = 5.8 x 100

Divide by 5/8 and get the percentage:

% = ^{5.8 x 100} / _{5/8} = 928%
