Question: How to find out what percentage a number is of another number?

Percentage is a number or ratio which is expressed as fraction of 100.

Answer: Take two numbers and divide number1 by number2. For percentage, multiply with 100.

Percentages are fractions with 100 as the denominator. 

Explanation: 

Suppose if number1 is 40 and the number2 is 67, then the percentage of 40 out of 67 is given by:

= number1 / number2

= 40/67

= 0.597

For percentage, 0.597 x 100 = 59.7 

Therefore, take two numbers and divide number1 by number2. For percentage, multiply with 100.
