## How does Percentage Calculator work?

When we want to find the share of a whole in terms of 100, we use the concept of percentages. Percent is represented by the symbol "%". If we want to calculate what percentage is a number of a total value, we follow the steps given below:

- Step 1: Divide the given number by the total value.
- Step 2: To express the value obtained in step 1 as a percentage multiply it by 100.

These steps can be expressed in the form of a formula as

Percentage (%) = (Value / Total Value) × 100.

If we want to compute what value is represented as a percentage, given a specified total value, the steps are followed as below:

- Express the given percentage in the form of a fraction. Suppose we have v%. The fraction can be written as v/100.
- We multiply this fraction by the total value. Thus, we can determine the value that is denoted by the percentage.

To find the value of a percentage the above-mentioned formula can be written as follows:

Value = (percentage/100) × Total value

## Solved Examples on Percentage:

**Example 1:** 15 is what percentage of 50 and verify it using the percentage calculator.

**Solution:**

We know that Percentage (%) = (Value/Total Value) × 100

Percentage = (15/50) × 100

⇒ 1500/50 = 30%

Therefore, 15 is 30% of 50.

**Example 2:** Find what is 40% of 80 and verify it using the percentage calculator.

**Solution:**

Value = (percentage/100) × Total value

Value = (40/100) × 80

Value = 32

Therefore, 40% of 80 is 32.

Similarly, you can try the percentage calculator to find the percentage for the following:

- 55 is what % of 80?
- What is 60% of 140?
