How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 28% of 160?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

28 / 100 = Part / 160

Cross multiply:

28 x 160 = 100 x Part, or

4480 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 4480 / 100 = 44.8

2) 28 is what percent of 160?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 28 / 160

Cross multiply:

% x 160 = 28 x 100

Divide by 160 and get the percentage:

% = 28 x 100 / 160 = 17.5%
