85 = 100% 5 = x% x = 5x100 ÷ 85 x = 5.88%

percent is just another way of saying "out of 100". So 85% is 85 out of 100, or as a fraction 85/100. That can then be simplified by a factor of 5 to give 17/20.

Simply divide it by 5. Say, for example, you wanted 20% of 85... 85/5 is 17 so 20% of 85 is 17.

85% of 49 is 41.65 Method: 49/20=5% of 49 5% * 17 = 85% 49/20 * 17 = 41.65
