How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 19% of 85?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

19 / 100 = Part / 85

Cross multiply:

19 x 85 = 100 x Part, or

1615 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 1615 / 100 = 16.15

2) 19 is what percent of 85?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 19 / 85

Cross multiply:

% x 85 = 19 x 100

Divide by 85 and get the percentage:

% = 19 x 100 / 85 = 22.352941176471%
