How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 26% of 40?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

26 / 100 = Part / 40

Cross multiply:

26 x 40 = 100 x Part, or

1040 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 1040 / 100 = 10.4

2) 26 is what percent of 40?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 26 / 40

Cross multiply:

% x 40 = 26 x 100

Divide by 40 and get the percentage:

% = 26 x 100 / 40 = 65%
