How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 25% of 900000?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

25 / 100 = Part / 900000

Cross multiply:

25 x 900000 = 100 x Part, or

22500000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 22500000 / 100 = 225000

2) 25 is what percent of 900000?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 25 / 900000

Cross multiply:

% x 900000 = 25 x 100

Divide by 900000 and get the percentage:

% = 25 x 100 / 900000 = 0.0027777777777778%
