How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 7.8% of 1/8?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

7.8 / 100 = Part / 1/8

Cross multiply:

7.8 x 1/8 = 100 x Part, or

0.975 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 0.975 / 100 = 0.078

2) 7.8 is what percent of 1/8?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 7.8 / 1/8

Cross multiply:

% x 1/8 = 7.8 x 100

Divide by 1/8 and get the percentage:

% = 7.8 x 100 / 1/8 = 6240%
