Question 3455: Please give me the formula on how to answer this question.
What percent of 50 is 210?
I don't want the answer, I want to find it myself. But I just can't grasp how to put it on paper to work the problem out. Answer by drglass(89) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! There are a few ways to solve a problem like this. The quickest is to notice that 50% is one half, so to find 50% of x you multiply x by 1/2. For a general percentage, think about what a percentage is. For example, 31% means 31/100. To find 31% of a value multiply the value by 31/100 or 0.31.
