How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 8.6% of 140?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

8.6 / 100 = Part / 140

Cross multiply:

8.6 x 140 = 100 x Part, or

1204 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 1204 / 100 = 12.04

2) 8.6 is what percent of 140?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 8.6 / 140

Cross multiply:

% x 140 = 8.6 x 100

Divide by 140 and get the percentage:

% = 8.6 x 100 / 140 = 6.1428571428571%
