How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 6.9% of 120?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

6.9 / 100 = Part / 120

Cross multiply:

6.9 x 120 = 100 x Part, or

828 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 828 / 100 = 8.28

2) 6.9 is what percent of 120?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 6.9 / 120

Cross multiply:

% x 120 = 6.9 x 100

Divide by 120 and get the percentage:

% = 6.9 x 100 / 120 = 5.75%
