The simplest way to calculate percentage is to divide the given amount

by the total amount and then multiplying the answer by 100 to get the

percentage of the given amount with respect to the total amount.

The equation can be put up as follows:

(Given amount/ Total amount) x100

For example if John scores 60 out of 75 in mathematics we can find the

percentage of his marks by dividing 60 by 75 which comes to be 0.8 and

then multiplying it by 100 which gives us the percentage of his marks

in math which is 80%.

(60/75) x 100 = 80%

When there are a number of given amounts (variables) and we have to

find their individual percentages then we have to add the given amounts

to determine the total amount after which by the above mentioned

procedure we can easily find the individual percentages by dividing

each given amount by the total amount and then multiplying it by 100.

Percentage questions are often worded in different ways like how much

is x% of y (80% of 75). Using the above example we can find the answer

by multiplying 75 by 80 and then dividing the amount by 100 to find the

answer which is 60. To calculate percentage increase or decrease

between two numbers just subtract the smaller number from the greater

and then divide the answer by the original one and then multiply it by

100 to determine the percentage increase or decrease. For example to

calculate the percentage increase from 20 to 30 we subtract 20 from 30

and then divide the number obtained which is 10 by the original number

which is 20 and then multiply the obtained number which is 0.5 by 100

to get the percentage increase which is 50%.
