What percent of 24 is 80?

x% of 24 = 80

Replace % with /100 and replace "of" with *

x/100 * 24 = 80

Divide both sides of the equation by 24

x/100 = 80/24

Multiply both sides of the equation by 100

x = 80/24 * 100

Calculate 80/24 * 100

24: 80*100 =

( 24*100): 80 =

2400: 80 = 30

Now we have: 24 is what percent of 80 = 30

Question: 24 is what percent of 80?

Percentage solution with steps:

Step 1: We make the assumption that 80 is 100% since it is our output value.

Step 2: We next represent the value we seek with $x$x.

Step 3: From step 1, it follows that $100\%=80$100%=80.

Step 4: In the same vein, $x\%=24$x%=24.

Step 5: This gives us a pair of simple equations:

$100\%=80(1)$100%=80(1).

$x\%=24(2)$x%=24(2).

Step 6: By simply dividing equation 1 by equation 2 and taking note of the fact that both the LHS

(left hand side) of both equations have the same unit (%); we have

$\frac{100\%}{x\%}=\frac{80}{24}$100%x%=8024

Step 7: Taking the inverse (or reciprocal) of both sides yields

$\frac{x\%}{100\%}=\frac{24}{80}$x%100%=2480

$\Rightarrow x=30\%$⇒x=30%

Therefore, $24$24 is $30\%$30% of $80$80.
