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 300 percent of 50. What are the steps?

Step 1: First determine the value of the whole amount. We assume that the whole amount is 50.

Step 2: Determine the percentage, which is 300.

Step 3: Convert the percentage 300% to its decimal form by dividing 300 by 100 to get the decimal number 3:

300100 = 3

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

300.0 → 30.00 → 3.00

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

3 x 50 = 150 (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 = 50 × 300100 = 50 × 3 = 150 (answer)

Therefore, the answer is 150 is that 300 percent of 50.
