How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 5% of 3/6?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

5 / 100 = Part / 3/6

Cross multiply:

5 x 3/6 = 100 x Part, or

2.5 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 2.5 / 100 = 0.15

2) 5 is what percent of 3/6?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 5 / 3/6

Cross multiply:

% x 3/6 = 5 x 100

Divide by 3/6 and get the percentage:

% = 5 x 100 / 3/6 = 1000%
