How do you figure out what percent a number is out of a whole? If I need to be more specific, here is an example. 3,200,000 is what percent of 8,000,000?

Just divide: 3,200,000 / 8,000,000 =0.4 x 100 = 40%.

Just divide 3,2000,000 by 8,000,000

 

So we have

 

3,200,000 / 8,000,000  =

 

32 / 80  =

 

2/5  =   .40   move the decimal point two places to the right and write a percent sign  =

 

40%

Just divide 8 million by 3.2 million.

 

Afterwards multiply your quotient by 100 and slap that percentage sign next to it.

 

Bam. You've got that percent.
