### Methods to calculate "3 is what percent of 5" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate 3 is what percent of 5.

- Step 1: For 5, our answer will be 3
- Step 2: For 100, our answer will be x
- Step 3: 5*x = 3*100 (In Step 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- Step 4: x = 3*100/5 = 300/5 = 60

#### 3 is 60 percent of 5 - using method 1

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate 3 is what percent of 5

- Step 1: For 5, our answer will be 3
- Step 2: For 100, our answer will be x
- Step 3: 3/x = 5/100 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- Step 4: x/3 = 100/5
- Step 5: x = 3*100/5 = 300/5 = 60

#### 3 is 60 percent of 5 - using method 2

### Percentage examplesPercentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 3% (read as 3 percent) can also be expressed as 3/100 or 3:100.

Example: If 3% (3 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 3 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 3*100 (i.e. $300) are invested in stocks.

### Calculate percentages in your headAt times you need to calculate a tip in a restaurant, or how to split money between friends in your head, that is without any calculator or pen and paper.

Many a time, it is quite easy if you break it down to smaller chunks. You should know how to find 1%, 10% and 50%. After that finding percentages becomes pretty easy.

- To find 5%, find 10% and divide it by two
- To find 11%, find 10%, then find 1%, then add both values
- To find 15%, find 10%, then add 5%
- To find 20%, find 10% and double it
- To find 25%, find 50% and then halve it
- To find 26%, find 25% as above, then find 1%, and then add these two values
- To find 60%, find 50% and add 10%
- To find 75%, find 50% and add 25%
- To find 95%, find 5% and then deduct it from the numberIf you know how to find these easy percentages, you can add, deduct and calculate percentages easily, specially if they are whole numbers. At least you should be able to find an approximate.
