How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 13% of 55.99?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

13 / 100 = Part / 55.99

Cross multiply:

13 x 55.99 = 100 x Part, or

727.87 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 727.87 / 100 = 7.2787

2) 13 is what percent of 55.99?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 13 / 55.99

Cross multiply:

% x 55.99 = 13 x 100

Divide by 55.99 and get the percentage:

% = 13 x 100 / 55.99 = 23.218431862833%
