1.) What percent of 50 is 10?

2.) What percent of 24 is 6?

2.) What percent of 24 is 6?

In the formula:

a = pb

a is the "part", p is the "percent", and b is the "whole"

1.) What percent of 50 is 10?

a = pb

10 = p(50) {substituted given information into formula}

p = .2 {divided both sides by 50}

**p = 20%**{changed to percent by moving decimal point right two places}

2.) What percent of 24 is 6?

a = pb

6 = p(24) {substituted into formula}

p = .25 {divided both sides by 24}

**p = 25%**{changed to percent by moving decimal point right two places}
