The following question is of the type "P is what percent of W,” where W is the whole amount and P is the portion amount". That is, this problem is of the type "calculating the percentage from a whole knowing the part".

(notice that this corresponds to 100%).

Step 2: Remember that we are looking for the percentage 'percentage'.

To solve this question, use the following formula:

X% = 100 × PW

This formula says that:

"To find the percentage from the whole, knowing the part, divide the part by the whole then multiply the result by 100".

Step 3: replacing the values into the formula, we get:

X% = 100 × 3640

X% = 360040

X = 3640

X = 3640 = 0.9000

Thus, the answer is 36 is 0.9000 out of 40 as a decimal.
