How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 7.9% of 4/9?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

7.9 / 100 = Part / 4/9

Cross multiply:

7.9 x 4/9 = 100 x Part, or

3.5111111111111 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 3.5111111111111 / 100 = 0.316

2) 7.9 is what percent of 4/9?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 7.9 / 4/9

Cross multiply:

% x 4/9 = 7.9 x 100

Divide by 4/9 and get the percentage:

% = 7.9 x 100 / 4/9 = 1777.5%
