#### Question

# What is 15% of...................?

12000 and 320000? and how do you find the percentage? I'm really bad about that, I always forget. Help?

#### Answer

of means multiply

so,

15% of 12000= 15/100 x 12000 = 1800

Follow the same procedure.. Try it! and you should be getting 48000

If you have to find the percentage, you will given sumthing like, you have 1800 out of 12000 or 40/50 and you have to change it into percentage.. you have to do reverse (before you were dividing with 100 and now you are multiplying)

1800/12000 x 100 = 15%

or

40/50 x 100 = 80 %

Hope that helps,

0.15*12000=1800

Percentage of new amount to previous amount=1800/12000*100%=15%

0.15*320000=48000

Percentage=48000/320000*100%=15%
