How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 6.9% of 12.99?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

6.9 / 100 = Part / 12.99

Cross multiply:

6.9 x 12.99 = 100 x Part, or

89.631 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 89.631 / 100 = 0.89631

2) 6.9 is what percent of 12.99?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 6.9 / 12.99

Cross multiply:

% x 12.99 = 6.9 x 100

Divide by 12.99 and get the percentage:

% = 6.9 x 100 / 12.99 = 53.117782909931%
