How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 60% of 15.99?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

60 / 100 = Part / 15.99

Cross multiply:

60 x 15.99 = 100 x Part, or

959.4 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 959.4 / 100 = 9.594

2) 60 is what percent of 15.99?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 60 / 15.99

Cross multiply:

% x 15.99 = 60 x 100

Divide by 15.99 and get the percentage:

% = 60 x 100 / 15.99 = 375.23452157599%
