# 25 is 40% of what number?

Percentage is a fraction or a ratio in which the value of whole is always 100

## Answer: 25 is 40 percent of the number 62.5

We know that,

**Percentage= (Value/Total Value)×100**

**Explanation:**

Let the number be y

40% of y = 25

=> (40/100) × y = 25

=> (2/5) × y = 25

=> y = (25 × 5) / 2

=> y = 125/2 = 62.5
