How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

1) What is 2% of 23?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

2 / 100 = Part / 23

Cross multiply:

2 x 23 = 100 x Part, or

46 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = 46 / 100 = 0.46

2) 2 is what percent of 23?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

% / 100 = 2 / 23

Cross multiply:

% x 23 = 2 x 100

Divide by 23 and get the percentage:

% = 2 x 100 / 23 = 8.695652173913%
