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 555 percent of 10. What are the steps?

Step 1: First determine the value of the whole amount. We assume that the whole amount is 10.

Step 2: Determine the percentage, which is 555.

Step 3: Convert the percentage 555% to its decimal form by dividing 555 by 100 to get the decimal number 5.55:

555100 = 5.55

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

555.0 → 55.50 → 5.55

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

5.55 x 10 = 55.5 (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 = 10 × 555100 = 10 × 5.55 = 55.5 (answer)

Therefore, the answer is 55.5 is that 555 percent of 10.
