## How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

### 1) What is 8% of 1/5?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

^{8} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{1/5}

Cross multiply:

8 x 1/5 = 100 x Part, or

1.6 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{1.6} / _{100} = 0.08

### 2) 8 is what percent of 1/5?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

^{%} / _{100} = ^{8} / _{1/5}

Cross multiply:

% x 1/5 = 8 x 100

Divide by 1/5 and get the percentage:

% = ^{8 x 100} / _{1/5} = 4000%
