How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 20% of 500000?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

20 / 100 = Part / 500000

Cross multiply:

20 x 500000 = 100 x Part, or

10000000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 10000000 / 100 = 100000

2) 20 is what percent of 500000?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 20 / 500000

Cross multiply:

% x 500000 = 20 x 100

Divide by 500000 and get the percentage:

% = 20 x 100 / 500000 = 0.004%
