# If You Have 7 Out Of 15, What Percentage Is That?

Divide 7 by 15 and that will give you a decimal. Then to convert to a % move your decimal point two positions to the right. Your answer should be a little less than 50% because 7 out of 14 is 50%.

Percentage means 'out of 100' ...you have taken away 7 items out of 15. Percentage tells you how many would you have taken out had the total items been 100 and here are Semester GPA Calculator through which you can calculate your percentage and also the GPA Calculations.

Out of 15 --- Taken out 7

Out of 100 ---- how much??

The formula for percentage is the following and it should be easy to use:

is/of = %/100 or part/whole = %/100

We will take examples to illustrate.Let us start with the formula

An important thing to remember: Cross multiply

It means to multiply the numerator of one fraction by the denominator of the other fraction

100 x 7 / 15 = 46.67 %
