How To Find The Percentage Of A Number: Mehn!! This particular problem can happen to literally anybody mehn! well I’ll be showing you two ways to calculate percentage, the easy way and the more easy way.

Calculating For Percentage EASY method

Get your calculator or your pen and paper lets solve some math *winks

Lets say the number whose percentage you want to calculate is A

Then the percentage you are calculating is C%

When you say percentage the number 100 is the main thing, i.e you can’t calculate percentage without involving 100 in it(correct me below if I am wrong)

Since we have established the fact that 100 is a part of percentage I will not be giving 100 any alphabet.

Now this is the formula for calculating percentage => C%×A/100 i.e C% multiplied by A then divided by 100.

Question: What is 15% of 30,000 => 15 × 30000 ÷ 100 = 4500

Question: What is 10% of 1000 => 10 × 1000 ÷ 100 = 100

Now, below are some questions on PERCENTAGE and how to solve them

Calculating percentage of decimal numbers

Question: Calculate 8% in 350.45

Answer: 8 × 350.45 ÷ 100 = 28.036

Calculating For Totals when given just percentage and percentage amount

Question: Assuming 350 is 15.3% of a number, what is the number?

Answer: First divide the percentage by 100 i.e 15.3 ÷ 100 = 0.153 then divide the percentage amount by the result i.e 350 ÷ 0.153 = 2287.6 ∴ 2287.6 is the total.

Proof: 15.3 × 2287.6 ÷ 100 = 350

Calculating for the percentage of a number from another(bigger) number 

Question: Calculate for the percentage of 350 in 400

Answer: 350 ÷ 400 × 100 = 87.5

Calculating For Percentage Increase Between Two Numbers

Question: How much percentage has been added between 1000 and 1350

Answer: First subtract the lower one from the higher one i.e 1350 – 1000 = 350, next divide the answer with the lower initial number i.e 350 ÷ 1350 = 0.259, then multiply the answer by 100 i.e 0.259 × 100 = 25.9

Calculating….. I don’t know how to put this question, but this is an example.

Question: 30% of what is 60?

Answer: Divide the percentage by 100 i.e 30 ÷ 100 = 0.3, then use the other number given in the question to divide the answer(new percentage) i.e 60 ÷ 0.3 = 200 ∴ 200 is the number.
