How do I find out what percentage one number is of another?
Percentage is a number or ratio which is expressed as fraction of 100.
Answer: One number (x) is (x/y) × 100 % of another number (y)
Percentages are fractions with 100 as the denominator.
Let's say we want to find out what percentage of 'y' is 'x'.
We get our answer by solving (x/y) × 100.
Thus, one number (x) is (x/y) × 100 % of another number (y)
