How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 12% of 55?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

12 / 100 = Part / 55

Cross multiply:

12 x 55 = 100 x Part, or

660 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 660 / 100 = 6.6

2) 12 is what percent of 55?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 12 / 55

Cross multiply:

% x 55 = 12 x 100

Divide by 55 and get the percentage:

% = 12 x 100 / 55 = 21.818181818182%
