How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 80% of 2?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

80 / 100 = Part / 2

Cross multiply:

80 x 2 = 100 x Part, or

160 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 160 / 100 = 1.6

2) 80 is what percent of 2?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 80 / 2

Cross multiply:

% x 2 = 80 x 100

Divide by 2 and get the percentage:

% = 80 x 100 / 2 = 4000%
