How do I find a percentage of a number?

Answer

You can find the percentage of a number by dividing the given value with the total value and then multiplying with 100 i.e. Percentage = (Given value / Total value) * 100. For example, if there are 5 oranges in a fruit basket containing total of 20 fruits then percentage of oranges = (5 / 20) * 100 = 25% meaning that in this fruit basket 25% of fruits are oranges.
