Sample percentage problems

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
