How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 6.2% of 14?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

6.2 / 100 = Part / 14

Cross multiply:

6.2 x 14 = 100 x Part, or

86.8 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 86.8 / 100 = 0.868

2) 6.2 is what percent of 14?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 6.2 / 14

Cross multiply:

% x 14 = 6.2 x 100

Divide by 14 and get the percentage:

% = 6.2 x 100 / 14 = 44.285714285714%
