How to find what percent of X is Y. Use the percentage formula: Y/X = P%

Example: What percent of 60 is 12?

  • Convert the problem to an equation using the percentage formula: Y/X = P%
  • X is 60, Y is 12, so the equation is 12/60 = P%
  • Do the math: 12/60 = 0.20
  • Important! The result will always be in decimal form, not percentage form. You need to multiply the result by 100 to get the percentage.
  • Converting 0.20 to a percent: 0.20 * 100 = 20%
  • So 20% of 60 is 12.
  • Double check your answer with the original question: What percent of 60 is 12? 12/60 = .020, and multiplying by 100 to get percentage, 0.20 * 100 = 20%
