How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 9.5% of 190?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

9.5 / 100 = Part / 190

Cross multiply:

9.5 x 190 = 100 x Part, or

1805 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 1805 / 100 = 18.05

2) 9.5 is what percent of 190?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 9.5 / 190

Cross multiply:

% x 190 = 9.5 x 100

Divide by 190 and get the percentage:

% = 9.5 x 100 / 190 = 5%
