Calculating the percentages
Example 1;What is 30% of $80?
Solution;You will multiply 30% by $80
=30% x $80 = (30/100) x $80 = 0.3 x $80 = 24
Answer = 24.
Example 2;25% is what percent of $70?
SolutionYou will divide 25% by $70
= (25%/$70) x 100% = 35.71429
Calculating the whole value
Example;$145 is 45% of what?
Solution;You will divide $145 by 45%
= $145 / 45% = (145/45) x 100 = 322.2222
Calculating the percentage change
Example;Find the percentage change from $70 to $80
SolutionYou will first find the difference between 80 and 70 then divide it by 70. The result will then be multiplied by 100%
[(80 - 70) / 70] x 100% = 14.28571%
