How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 6.4% of 23?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

6.4 / 100 = Part / 23

Cross multiply:

6.4 x 23 = 100 x Part, or

147.2 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 147.2 / 100 = 1.472

2) 6.4 is what percent of 23?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 6.4 / 23

Cross multiply:

% x 23 = 6.4 x 100

Divide by 23 and get the percentage:

% = 6.4 x 100 / 23 = 27.826086956522%
