#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "What percent of 80 is 5"

- For 80, our answer will be 5
- For 100, our answer will be x
- 80*x = 100*5 (In Step 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- x = 100*5/80 = 500/80 = 6.25

#### 6.25% of 80 is 5

- For 80, our answer will be 5
- For 100, our answer will be x
- 5/x = 80/100 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 80/100 = 5/x or x/5 = 100/80
- x = 5*100/80 = 500/80 = 6.25

#### 6.25% of 80 is 5

### Percentage examples

Percentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 80% (read as 80 percent) can also be expressed as 80/100 or 80:100.Example: If 80% (80 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 80 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 80*100 (i.e. $8000) are invested in stocks.

- To find 11%, find 10%, then find 1%, then add both values
- To find 15%, find 10%, then add 5%
- To find 20%, find 10% and double it
- To find 25%, find 50% and then halve it
- To find 26%, find 25% as above, then find 1%, and then add these two values
- To find 60%, find 50% and add 10%
- To find 75%, find 50% and add 25%
- To find 95%, find 5% and then deduct it from the number
