**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

**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

**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.
