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 2.75 percent of 6. What are the steps?

Step 1: First determine the value of the whole amount. We assume that the whole amount is 6.

Step 2: Determine the percentage, which is 2.75.

Step 3: Convert the percentage 2.75% to its decimal form by dividing 2.75 by 100 to get the decimal number 0.0275:

2.75100 = 0.0275

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

2.8 → 0.28 → 0.03

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

0.0275 x 6 = 0.165 (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 = 6 × 2.75100 = 6 × 0.0275 = 0.165 (answer)

Therefore, the answer is 0.165 is that 2.75 percent of 6.
