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 130 percent of 250. What are the steps?

Step 1: first determine the value of the whole amount. We assume that the whole amount is 250.

Step 2: determine the percentage, which is 130.

Step 3: Convert the percentage 130% to its decimal form by dividing 130 into 100 to get the decimal number 1.3:

130100 = 1.3

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

130.0 → 13.00 → 1.30

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

1.3 x 250 = 325 (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 = 250 × 130100 = 250 × 1.3 = 325 (answer)

Therefore, the answer is 325 is 130 percent of 250.
