# 25 is 40% of what number?

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

## Answer: 25 is 40 percent of 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
