Solution Steps

The following question is of the type "How much X percent of W", where W is the whole amount and X is the percentage figure or rate".

Let's say that you need to find 118 percent of 120. What are the steps?

Step 1: First determine the value of the whole amount. We assume that the whole amount is 120.

Step 2: Determine the percentage, which is 118.

Step 3: Convert the percentage 118% to its decimal form by dividing 118 by 100 to get the decimal number 1.18:

118100 = 1.18

Notice that dividing by 100 is the same as moving the decimal point two places to the left.

118.0 → 11.80 → 1.18

Step 4: Finally, find the portion by multiplying the decimal form found in the previous step by the whole amount:

1.18 x 120 = 141.6 (answer).

The steps above are expressed by the formula:

P = W × X%100

This formula says that:

"To find the portion or the part from the whole amount, multiply the whole by the percentage, then divide the result by 100".

The symbol % means the percentage expressed in a fraction or multiple of one hundred.

Replacing these values in the formula, we get:

P = 120 × 118100 = 120 × 1.18 = 141.6 (answer)

Therefore, the answer is 141.6 is that 118 percent of 120.
