# How to find 40 percent of a number

40 percent *40= (40/100)*40= (40*40)/100= 1600/100 = 16Now we have: 40 percent of 40 = 16Question: What is 40 percent of 40?We need to determine 40% of 40 now and the procedure exp

40 percent *40

= (40/100)*40

= (40*40)/100

= 1600/100 = 16

**Now we have: 40 percent of 40 = 16**

**Question: What is 40 percent of 40?**

We need to determine 40% of 40 now and the procedure explaining it as such

Step 1: In the given case Output Value is 40.

Step 2: Let us consider the unknown value as x.

Step 3: Consider the output value of 40 = 100%.

Step 4: In the Same way, x = 40%.

Step 5: On dividing the pair of simple equations we got the equation as under

40 = 100% (1).

x = 40% (2).

(40%)/(x%) = 100/40

Step 6: Reciprocal of both the sides results in the following equation

x%/40% = 40/100

Step 7: Simplifying the above obtained equation further will tell what is 40% of 40

x = 16%

Therefore, 40% of 40 is **16**
