What percent is 4% of 5% ?
Required percentage is = ( 4% x 100 / 5% )% = [( 4 / 100) x 100 / (4 / 100) ]%
= ( 4 x 100 x 100 / 100 x 5 ) % = 80%.
Example 2 :
1 / 3 of 1206 is what % of 134 ?
Let 1 x 1206 / 3 = y% of 134 . Then, y x 134 / 100= 402
x = ( 402 x 100 / 134 ) = 300.
Example 3 :
M is what % of N ?
100 M / N %.
Example 4 :
How is 3 / 2% expressed as a percentage ?
3 x 100 / 2 = 150%.
Example 5 :
35% of 250 + 25% of 350
35 X 2.50 + 25 X 3.50 = 87.5 + 87.5 = 175
( We can write 250 / 100 = 2.50 and 350 / 100 = 3.50 when any number divide by 100 then put the two decimal point above the number which help in quick calculation ).
20% of 400 + 60% of 800
( 20 x 400 / 100 ) + ( 60 x 800 / 100 )
= ( 80 + 480 )
Example 7 :
48 % of 200 gm – 18% of 400 gm
48 x 2 = 96, 18 x 4 = 72, ( 96 – 72 ) = 24.
Example 8 :
5 is what percent of 50 ?
(5 / 50) = 10 and (100 / 10 )% = 10%.
Example 9 :
How is 3 / 2 % expressed as a decimal fraction ?
To express x% as a fraction: we have x% = x / 100
3 / 2 %
= ( 3 x 1 / 2 x 100 ) = 0.015.
A is six times as large as B. The percent that B less than A, is:
A = 6B So, B is less than A by 5B
Required percentage is :
(5B / 100)% = (5B / 6B x 100)% = 250 / 3 % .
