## 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%
