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 170 percent of 200. What are the steps?

Step 1: First determine the value of the whole amount. We assume that the whole amount is 200.

Step 2: Determine the percentage, which is 170.

Step 3: Convert the percentage 170% to its decimal form by dividing 170 by 100 to get the decimal number 1.7:

170100 = 1.7

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

170.0 → 17.00 → 1.70

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

1.7 x 200 = 340 (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 = 200 × 170100 = 200 × 1.7 = 340 (answer)

Therefore, the answer is 340 is that 170 percent of 200.
