How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 75% of 8/9?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

75 / 100 = Part / 8/9

Cross multiply:

75 x 8/9 = 100 x Part, or

66.666666666667 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 66.666666666667 / 100 = 6

2) 75 is what percent of 8/9?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 75 / 8/9

Cross multiply:

% x 8/9 = 75 x 100

Divide by 8/9 and get the percentage:

% = 75 x 100 / 8/9 = 8437.5%
