## How to find percentage?

There are 9 different kinds of percentages to find the percentage or number. Follow the below examples to learn all the kinds of percentages.

**What is % of?**

Percentage (P%) * U = V

**Example **

What is 20% of 280?

**Solution **

**Step 1: **Write the given problem according to the formula.

20% * 280 = V

**Step 2: **Convert the percentage into a fraction by taking 100 in the denominator.

20/100 * 280 = V

0.20 * 280 = V

**Step 3: **Multiply both terms.

56 = V

Hence, the 20% of 280 is 56.

**Is what % of?**

Percentage (P%) = V/U

The result will come in decimals, you have to multiply the decimal by 100 to get the percentage form.

**Example**

What percent of 200 is 30?

**Solution**

**Step 1:** Write the given problem according to the formula.

Percentage (P%) = 30/200

**Step 2: **Convert the fraction into a decimal.

Percentage (P%) = 0.15

**Step 3: **Now multiply the decimal by 100 to get the percentage.

Percentage (P%) = 0.15 x 100

Percentage (P%) = 15%

**Is % of what?**

U = V/P%

**Example **

45 is 30% of what number?

**Solution **

**Step 1: **Write the given problem according to the formula.

V = 45

P% = 30

U = 45/30%

**Step 2:** Convert the percentage into a fraction by dividing it by 100.

U = 45/(30/100)

U = 45/0.3

**Step 3: **Divide the above expression.

U = 45/0.3 = 150

Hence, 45 is 30% of 150.

**Out of what is %?**

P% = V/U

**Example **

What percent of 340 is 60?

**Solution **

**Step 1:** Write it according to the formula P% = V/U.

P% = 60/340

**Step 2:** Divide the above term to convert the fraction into a decimal.

P% = 0.1765

**Step 3: **Now multiply the decimal by 100 to get the percentage.

P% = 0.1765 * 100

P% = 17.65%

Hence, 60 out of 340 is 17.65%.

**What is % of is?**

P% = V/U

**Example **

30 of what is 40%?

**Step 1:** Write the terms according to the formula.

P% = 40%

V = 30

U =?

P% = V/U

40% = 30/U

U = 30/40%

**Step 2: **Convert the percentage into a decimal.

U = 30/(40/100)

U = 30/0.4

**Step 3:** Divide the above expression.

U = 75

Hence, 30 of 75 is 40%.

**% of what is?**

U = V/P%

**Example **

35% of what is 12?

**Solution**

**Step 1:** Write the terms according to the formula.

P% = 35%

V = 12

U =?

P% = V/U

35% = 12/U

U = 12/35%

**Step 2: **Convert the percentage into a decimal.

U = 12/(35/100)

U = 12/0.35

**Step 3: **Divide the above expression.

U = 34.29

Hence, 35% of 34.29 is 12.

**% of is what?**

V = P% * U

**Example **

26% of 376 is what?

**Solution **

**Step 1:** Write the terms according to the formula.

P% = 26%

U = 376

V =?

V = P% * U

V = 26% * 376

**Step 2: **Convert the percentage into a fraction.

V = 26/100 * 376

**Step 3: **Convert the fraction into a decimal.

V = 0.26 * 376

**Step 4: **Now multiply the above expression.

V = 97.76

Hence, 26% of 376 is 97.76

**What out of is %?**

V = P% * U

**Example **

What out of 450 is 63%?

**Solution **

**Step 1: **Write the terms according to the formula.

P% = 63%

U = 450

V =?

V = P% * U

V = 63% * 450

**Step 2: **Convert the percentage into a fraction.

V = 63/100 * 450

Step 3: Convert the fraction into a decimal.

V = 0.63 * 450

**Step 4:** Now multiply the above expression.

V = 283.5

Hence, 283 out of 450 is 63%.

**What is % of out of?**

P% = V/U

**Example**

What is % of 245 out of 678?

**Solution **

**Step 1:** Write the terms according to the formula.

P% =?

U = 678

V =245

P% = V/U

P% = 245/678

**Step 2: **Convert the fraction into a decimal.

P% = 0.3614

**Step 3: **Now multiply the decimal by 100 to get the percentage.

P% = 0.3614 * 100

P% = 36.14%

Hence, 36.14% is the percent of 245 out of 678.
