How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 7.7% of 1600?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

7.7 / 100 = Part / 1600

Cross multiply:

7.7 x 1600 = 100 x Part, or

12320 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 12320 / 100 = 123.2

2) 7.7 is what percent of 1600?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 7.7 / 1600

Cross multiply:

% x 1600 = 7.7 x 100

Divide by 1600 and get the percentage:

% = 7.7 x 100 / 1600 = 0.48125%
