# To Find the Percent of a Given Number

To find the percent of a given number let us consider some of the following examples.

1. Find 50% of 75.

Solution:

50% of 75

= 50 × 1/100 × 75

= 50/100 × 75

= (50 × 75)/100

= 3750/100

= 3750/100 ÷ 50/50

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 50]

= 75/2

= 37 ½

2. Find 12% of 250.

Solution:

12% of 250

= 12 × 1/100 × 250

= 12/100 × 250

= (12 × 250)/100

= 3000/100

= 3000/100 ÷ 100/100

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 100]

= 30

3. Find 30% of 86.

Solution:

30% of 86

= 30 × 1/100 × 86

= 30/100 × 86

= (30 × 86)/100

= 2580/100

= 2580/100 ÷ 20/20

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 20]

= 129/5

= 25 4/5

4. Find 15% of 60.

Solution:

15% of 60

= 15 × 1/100 × 60

= 15/100 × 60

= (15 × 60)/100

= 900/100

= 900/100 ÷ 100/100

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 100]

= 9

5. Find 21% of 200.

Solution:

21% of 200

= 21 × 1/100 × 200

= 21/100 × 200

= (21 × 200)/100

= 4200/100

= 4200/100 ÷ 100/100

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 100]

= 42

6. Find 10% of 500.

Solution:

10% of 500

= 10 × 1/100 × 500

= 10/100 × 500

= (10 × 500)/100

= 5000/100

= 5000/100 ÷ 100/100

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 100]

= 50

7. Find 6% of 1000.

Solution:

6% of 1000

= 6 × 1/100 × 1000

= 6/100 × 1000

= (6 × 1000)/100

= 6000/100

= 6000/100 ÷ 100/100

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 100]

= 60

8. Find 80% of 120.

Solution:

80% of 120

= 80 × 1/100 × 120

= 80/100 × 120

= (80 × 120)/100

= 9600/100

= 9600/100 ÷ 100/100

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 100]

= 96

9. What is 20% of 1500?

Solution:

20% of 1500

= 20 × 1/100 × 1500

= 20/100 × 1500

= (20 × 1500)/100

= 30000/100

= 30000/100 ÷ 100/100

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 100]

= 300

10. What is 25% of 140?

Solution:

25% of 140

= 25 × 1/100 × 140

= 25/100 × 140

= (25 × 140)/100

= 3500/100

= 3500/100 ÷ 100/100

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 100]

= 35

11.What is 24% of 230?

Solution:

24% of 230

= 24 × 1/100 × 230

= 24/100 × 230

= (24 × 230)/100

= 5520/100

= 5520/100 ÷ 20/20

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 20]

= 276/5

= 55 1/5

12. What is 14% of 56? Solution:

14% of 56

= 14 × 1/100 × 56

= 14/100 × 56

= (14 × 56)/100

= 784/100

= 784/100 ÷ 4/4

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 4]
