To find what percent is one number of another number, let us consider some of the following examples.

**1.** What % is 25 of 200?**Solution:**

(25/200) × 100

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 25; 25/200 ÷ 25/25]

= (1/8) × 100

= (1 × 100)/8

= 100/8

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 4; 100/8 ÷ 4/4]

= 25/2

= 12 1/2 %

**2.** What % is 95 out of 150?

**Solution:**

(95/150) × 100

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 5; 95/150 ÷ 5/5]

= (19/30) × 100

= (19 × 100)/30

= 1900/30

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 10; 1900/30 ÷ 10/10]

= 190/3

= 63 1/3 %

**3.** What % is 22 of 44?

**Solution:**

(22/44) × 100

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 22; 22/44 ÷ 22/22]

= (1/2) × 100

= (1 × 100)/2

= 100/2

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 2; 100/2 ÷ 2/2]

= 50%

**4.** What % is 30 of 150?

**Solution:**

(30/150) × 100

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 30; 30/150 ÷ 30/30]

= (1/5) × 100

= (1 × 100)/5

= 100/5

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 5; 100/5 ÷ 5/5]

= 20%

**5. What % is 250 of 1200?**

**Solution:(250/1200) × 100[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 50; 250/1200 ÷ 50/50]= (5/24) × 100= (5 × 100)/24= 500/24[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 4; 500/24 ÷ 4/4]= 125/6= 20 5/6 %**

**These are the word problems where we need to find what Percent is one Number of another Number.**

**6.** What % is 86 of 2580?

**Solution:**

(86/2580) × 100

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 86; 86/2580 ÷ 86/86]

= (1/30) × 100

= (1 × 100)/30

= 100/30

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 10; 100/30 ÷ 10/10]

= 10/3

= 3 1/3 %

**7.** What % of 5.6 is 560?

**Solution:**

(5.6/560) × 100

= (0.01) × 100

= 0.01 × 100

= 1%

**8.** What % is 60 of 150?

**Solution:**

(60/150) × 100

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 30; 60/150 ÷ 30/30]

= (2/5) × 100

= (2 × 100)/5

= 200/5

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 5; 200/5 ÷ 5/5]

= 40 %

**9.** What % is 900 of 2700?

**Solution:**

(900/2700) × 100

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 900; 900/2700 ÷ 900/900]

= (1/3) × 100

= (1 × 100)/3

= 100/3

= 33 1/3 %

**10.** What % is 43 of 172?

**Solution:**

(43/172) × 100

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 43; 43/172÷ 43/43]

= (1/4) × 100

= (1 × 100)/4

= 100/4

[Cancel the numerator and denominator or divide by 4; 100/4 ÷ 4/4]
