How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 24% of 32?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

24 / 100 = Part / 32

Cross multiply:

24 x 32 = 100 x Part, or

768 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 768 / 100 = 7.68

2) 24 is what percent of 32?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 24 / 32

Cross multiply:

% x 32 = 24 x 100

Divide by 32 and get the percentage:

% = 24 x 100 / 32 = 75%
