How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 5.9% of 60000000?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

5.9 / 100 = Part / 60000000

Cross multiply:

5.9 x 60000000 = 100 x Part, or

354000000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 354000000 / 100 = 3540000

2) 5.9 is what percent of 60000000?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 5.9 / 60000000

Cross multiply:

% x 60000000 = 5.9 x 100

Divide by 60000000 and get the percentage:

% = 5.9 x 100 / 60000000 = 9.8333333333333E-6%
