For finding percentage of a number, say, with respect to a number(or total), say, y, the general formula is: x/y * 100 so, here in this case: x=400, y =700 so, the required percentage = (400/700) * 100 i.e. 400/7 = 57.143% (Rounded off to the third decimal place)

Multiply it by 100 to turn it into a percentage

as a percentage of what.

say the number you start out with is A, and the number it becomes is B. to find the percentage, you must subtract A-B. Then divide the answer by A and multiply by 100% to get the percentage. (A-B)/A * 100% ex. 10 is the number you start with, 4 is the second number. So A=10 and B=4 10-4=6 6/10=0.6 multiply by 100% to get the percentage 60% so the percent of decrease is 60%

0.44 in percentage is 44%.
