**How to Find the Percentage of a number** :- The word percentage is derived from the Latin word ‘per-centum’. It means ‘per hundred’, or hundred’ or hundredth’. The symbol which is used to represent the percent is %. E.g. 67 percent is written as 67%, thirteen percent is written as 13% etc.

The meaning of this is given below.

Thirteen percent 13 % = 13/100, thirteen divided by one hundred

Sixty seven percent 67% = 67/100, sixty seven divided by one hundred.

**Example: -** Let us find the thirty three percent (33%) of a number three thousand, three hundred and thirty three (3333).

**Solution: -** The given number is three thousand, three hundred and thirty three (3333).

Therefore, thirty three percent of the number three thousand three hundred and thirty three (3333). = 33/100 X 3333 = 1099.89 (One thousand ninety nine point eight nine)

**Example: -** Let us find the sixty three percent (63%) of a number ninety three thousand, five hundred and thirty three (93533).

**Solution: -** The given number is ninety three thousand, five hundred and thirty three (93533). Therefore sixty three percent of the number ninety three thousand, five hundred and thirty three (93533) is. = 63/100 X 93533 = 58925.79 (fifty eight thousand nine hundred and twenty five point seven nine.)

**Example: -** Let us find what percentage of forty are sixty.

**Solution: -** Let x be the percentage, 40 be the original number, increased number be 60.

Hence the equation become

40 + x/100 * 40 = 60

40 + 40/100 = 60

40x/100 = 20

40x = 20 * 100

X = 20 * 100/40

X = 50
