# 8 is What Percent of 20

## Question: 8 is what percent of 20?

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

## Answer: 8 is 40 percent of 20

We know that,

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

## Explanation:

Let, x% of 20 be 8

=> (x/100) × 20 = 8

=> x/5 = 8

=> x = 8 × 5

=> x = 40

Verification:

40% of 20 = (40/100) ×20

= 40/5 = 8

### Thus, 8 is 40 % of 20
