Calculation of percentages – explanation

Percent is a way of expressing relative size, where one percent is one hundredth of the whole. It is customary to write percentages as an actual number with the sign "%" to the right of it. The general formula for calculating a percentage is: X / Y = P x 100, where X and Y are numbers and P is the percentage.

Calculation of percentages – examples

• If 50% of all the apples in the bag are green, that means 50 out of every 100 apples are green. If there are 10 apples, then 5 of them are green.
• A \$ 0.1 increase in price from \$ 2 is a 5% increase (5% = 0.05 = 0.1 / 2).

Show change in percentage

A change (decrease or increase in number or quantity) displayed in percent, refers to the number or initial value.

Percentage changes – examples

• A 10% increase in quantity means that the final amount is 110% of the initial amount (100% of the start + 10% of the increase = 110% of the initial).
• A decrease of 30% means that the final amount is 80% of the source (80% = 20% -100%).

Using the percentage calculator

• You can use the percentage calculator to calculate:
• What is the P percentage of the number X? (Example: What is 30% of 2000?)
• What is the percentage that makes up the number X from the number Y? (Example: What percentage is 10 out of 50?)
• What is the percentage change from X to Y? (Example: what is the percentage change from 100 to 120).
