How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 6% of 850000?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

6 / 100 = Part / 850000

Cross multiply:

6 x 850000 = 100 x Part, or

5100000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 5100000 / 100 = 51000

2) 6 is what percent of 850000?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 6 / 850000

Cross multiply:

% x 850000 = 6 x 100

Divide by 850000 and get the percentage:

% = 6 x 100 / 850000 = 0.00070588235294118%
