## How to work out percentages - Step by Step

Here are the solutions to the questions stated above:

### 1) What is 1% of 500?

Always use this formula to find a percentage:

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

^{1} / _{100} = ^{Part} / _{500}

Cross multiply:

1 x 500 = 100 x Part, or

500 = 100 x Part

Now, divide by 100 and get the answer:

Part = ^{500} / _{100} = 5

### 2) 1 is what percent of 500?

Use again the same percentage formula:

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

^{%} / _{100} = ^{1} / _{500}

Cross multiply:

% x 500 = 1 x 100

Divide by 500 and get the percentage:

% = ^{1 x 100} / _{500} = 0.2%
