See the solutions to these problems just after the percentage calculator below.

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{8.4} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{85000}

Cross multiply:

8.4 x 85000 = 100 x Part, or

714000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{714000} / _{100} = 7140

Use again the same percentage formula:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{8.4} / _{85000}

Cross multiply:

% x 85000 = 8.4 x 100

Divide by 85000 and get the percentage:

% = ^{8.4 x 100} / _{85000} = 0.0098823529411765%
