### Methods to calculate "64 is 5 percent of what number" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "64 is 5 percent of what number".

- As given: For 5, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 64, our answer will be X
- 5*X = 100*64 (In Steps 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- X = 100*64/5 = 6400/5 = 1280

#### 64 is 5 percent of 1280

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "64 is 5 percent of what number".

- As given: For 5, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 64, our answer will be X
- 100/x = 5/64 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 100/X = 5/64 or x/100 = 64/5
- X = 64*100/64 = 6400/5 = 1280

#### 64 is 5 percent of 1280

### 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. 64% (read as 64 percent) can also be expressed as 64/100 or 64:100.Example: If 64% (64 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 64 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 64*100 (i.e. $6400) are invested in stocks.

### Percentage sign (%)

The percent (per cent i.e. per hundred) sign % is the standard symbol to indicate a percentage, to signify a number or ratio as a fraction of 100. Related signs include the permille (per thousand) sign ‰ and the permyriad (per ten thousand) sign ‱ (also known as a basis point), which indicate that a number is divided by one thousand or ten thousand, respectively.### Scholarship programs to learn math
