## How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

### 1) What is 10% of 100?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{10} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{100}

Cross multiply:

10 x 100 = 100 x Part, or

1000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{1000} / _{100} = 10

### 2) What is 10 out of 100?

This question is equivalent to: "10 is what percent of 100?" Or What percent 10 is out of 100?

Use again the same percentage formula:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{Whole} replace the given values:

^{%} / _{100} = ^{10} / _{100}

Cross multiply:

% x 100 = 10 x 100

Divide by 100 to get the percentage:

% = ^{(10 x 100)} / _{100} = 10%

#### A shorter way to calculate x out of y

You can easily find 10 is out of 100, in one step, by simply dividing 10 by 100, then multiplying the result by 100. So,

10 is out of 100 = ^{10}/_{100} x 100 = 10%
