See the solutions to these problems just after the percentage calculator below.

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{26} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{55.99}

Cross multiply:

26 x 55.99 = 100 x Part, or

1455.74 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{1455.74} / _{100} = 14.5574

Use again the same percentage formula:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{26} / _{55.99}

Cross multiply:

% x 55.99 = 26 x 100

Divide by 55.99 and get the percentage:

% = ^{26 x 100} / _{55.99} = 46.436863725665%
