## How to Find the Percentage Composition of Quantities?

Percentage composition means when a certain quantity is measured out of many different quantities in terms of percentage.The following formula helps to find the percentage composition of any quantity in a mixture or in a combination of other quantities. For this, the measure of the specific quantity should be known along with the sum of the total quantities.

Percentage Composition of a Quantity = (Quantity/Sum of the Quantities) × 100

Let us check the following example to understand this better.

**Solved Example: **

The preparation of a pizza includes 4 pounds of refined flour, 0.5 pounds of spices, and 0.5 pounds of oil. Find the percentage composition of refined flour in the mixture.

**Solution:**

We need to calculate the percentage composition of refined flour among all the ingredients.

Quantity of refined flour in the mixture = 4 pounds

Sum of all the ingredients = 4 pounds of refined flour + 0.5 pounds of spices + 0.5 pounds of oil

= 4 + 0.5 + 0.5

= 5 pounds

Percentage Composition of refined flour = (Quantity of refined flour/Sum of the Ingredients) × 100

= 4/5 × 100

=400/5

= 80%

Therefore, the percentage composition of refined flour in the pizza ingredients is 80%.

Similarly, the percentage composition of the spices and oil can also be calculated using the given formula.

Now, try the calculator to find the percentage composition of all the quantities for the following mixtures and combinations:

- Quantity I = 34 units; Quantity II = 234 units; Quantity III = 567 units
- Quantity I = 23 units; Quantity II = 304 units; Quantity III = 4 units
