**1. What is 40% of 600?**

Ans. Since 40% = ^{40}/_{100},

Therefore, 40% of 600 = ^{40}/_{100} × 600 = .4 × 600 = 240

**2. What percent is 40 of 800?**

Ans. Since we have to find the percentage, we rewrite the problem as:**x**% of 800 = 40

⇒ ^{x}/_{100} × 800 = 40

⇒ **x** × 800 = 40 × 100

⇒ **x** = ^{40 × 100} / _{800}

⇒ **x** = 5%

**3. 12 is 20% of what amount?**

Ans. Rewriting the problem, we have:

20% × **x** = 12

⇒ ^{20}/_{100} × **x** = 12

⇒20 × **x** = 12 × 100

⇒**x** = ^{12 × 100}/_{20}

⇒**x** = 60

In mathematics, a percentage is a number or ratio expressed as a fraction of 100. i.e., 5% = 5/100 = .05. So a **x**% of a number **y** is **x**/100***y**.
