How to calculate percentage
Finding a percentage
Finding a percentage is a very necessary skill. It will come in handy in many situations from tipping to business.
Let’s take for example, the percentage of 4 in 16, in other words, what percent or fraction of 16 is 4. There are many ways to determine the answer for this.
1. First, write the given numbers:
4/16. If we get the LCD or round it off, we’ll have 1/4 , which is equal to 25%.
2. Second way to solve this is thru division.
4/16= 4⟌16 = 0.25
0.25 is the same thing as 25 hundredths or 25/100 which is equal to 25%.
