How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 5.8% of 5/8?

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

2) 5.8 is what percent of 5/8?

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%
