See the solutions to these problems just after the percentage calculator below.

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

^{40} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{1/8}

Cross multiply:

40 x 1/8 = 100 x Part, or

5 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{5} / _{100} = 0.4

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

^{%} / _{100} = ^{40} / _{1/8}

Cross multiply:

% x 1/8 = 40 x 100

Divide by 1/8 and get the percentage:

% = ^{40 x 100} / _{1/8} = 32000%
