How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 9% of 8/10?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

9 / 100 = Part / 8/10

Cross multiply:

9 x 8/10 = 100 x Part, or

7.2 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 7.2 / 100 = 0.72

2) 9 is what percent of 8/10?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 9 / 8/10

Cross multiply:

% x 8/10 = 9 x 100

Divide by 8/10 and get the percentage:

% = 9 x 100 / 8/10 = 1125%
