What percent of 50 is 10

Report as

The answer is 20%. User: talk... Gave a great example of how to come to that conclusion. Something else that could help and I will do my best to explain is when looking for a percentage of something break it to the most simple form... For example if you take 50.00... And you want to find 10% of that you can easily move the decimal one place to the left which would make the answer 5.00. To find the percentage of 20... Just double the 5.00 giving you total of 10! Hope that helps :)

20%. The math is as follows:
50 * (? %) = 10
(? % ) = 10 / 50 = 0.2
0.2 being the same as 20% (1.0 is 100%, etc).

10% of a number can be found by shifting the decimal place 1 place to the left.
10% of 100.0 is 10.0.
10% of 50.0 is 5.0
Thus, you can also see that 10 is more than 10% of 50, it's actually twice that (in that, it's 2 x 10% which is 2 x 5.0). The answer is 20%

it's 20% coz 50*?/100= 10
50*?=1000
?=1000/50
