Formula used to solve percentage problems that relates two ratios where one of the ratios is a part or portion per 100 and the other ratio is a part or portion per a whole.
A% of B is C as in: 10% of 90 is 9 where A=10, B=90, C=9
The percentage formula is:
A/100 x B = C as in: 10/100 x 90 = 9
A 100 = C B as in: 10 100 = 9 90
The percentage formula is sometimes expressed as:
percent 100 = is(part) of(whole) as in: 10 100 = 9 90
Solving for each of the variables yields:
A = (C / B) x 100 as in: A = (9 / 90) x 100 = 10
B = C / (A / 100) as in: B = 9 / (10 / 100) = 90
C = (A / 100) x B as in: C = (10 / 100) x 90 = 9
Note: A% = A/100 because % means per 100
