- The whole amount is represented by W
- The portion amount or part is represented by P

#### 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 75.00 percent of 16. What are the steps?

**Step 1**: First determine the value of the whole amount. We assume that the whole amount is 16.

**Step 2**: Determine the percentage, which is 75.00.

**Step 3**: Convert the percentage 75.00% to its decimal form by dividing 75.00 by 100 to get the decimal number 0.75:

75.00100 = 0.75

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

75.0 → 7.50 → 0.75

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

0.75 x 16 = 12 (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 = 16 × 75.00100 = 16 × 0.75 = 12 (answer)

Therefore, the answer is 12 is that 75.00 percent of 16.
