## 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 number_{1} by number_{2}. For percentage, multiply with 100.

Percentages are fractions with 100 as the denominator.

## Explanation:

Suppose if number_{1} is 40 and the number_{2} is 67, then the percentage of 40 out of 67 is given by:

= number_{1} / number_{2}

= 40/67

= 0.597

For percentage, 0.597 x 100 = 59.7

### Therefore, take two numbers and divide number_{1} by number_{2}. For percentage, multiply with 100.
