## How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

### 1) What is 1% of 2000?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

^{1} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{2000}

Cross multiply:

1 x 2000 = 100 x Part, or

2000 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{2000} / _{100} = 20

### 2) What is 1 out of 2000?

This question is equivalent to: "1 is what percent of 2000?" Or What percent 1 is out of 2000?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

^{%} / _{100} = ^{1} / _{2000}

Cross multiply:

% x 2000 = 1 x 100

Divide by 2000 to get the percentage:

% = ^{(1 x 100)} / _{2000} = 0.05%

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

You can easily find 1 is out of 2000, in one step, by simply dividing 1 by 2000, then multiplying the result by 100. So,

1 is out of 2000 = ^{1}/_{2000} x 100 = 0.05%
