Here is the method that can help you to find percentage with two numbers given in the question. With this formula, you can easily find the percentage difference between two numbers.
Follow these steps to find the percentage between two numbers:-
- In Question, two numbers are given.
- Divide the first number by the second number.
- Now, Multiply it by 100.
- Simplify and solve to get the answer.
Two numbers that are given in the question are 5 and 4 and we need to find the percentage of 4 in 5.
Dividing 4 by 5, we get 4/5
Now Multiply by 100, 4/5 X 100 = 80%
So, 80% is the answer and 4 is 80 percent of 5.
In this way, you can find the percentage of two numbers.
How to find the fraction of the number that you are interested in?
Let’s say you have a product that costs $90 and your customer discounts it by 10%. To find the amount of discount, multiply the original price by 0.10.
$90 x 0.10 = 9.00
You can also use a calculator to solve this problem: 90 x 0.1 = 9.00. The answer is $9.00 which is 10% of $90.
How to convert the fraction to a percent. (Move the decimal point two places to the right and add “%”)
Now that you’ve calculated the fraction by dividing your number by the total, all you have to do is convert it to percent. To do this, move the decimal point two places to the right and add a “%” sign at the end of your answer. For example: if your answer is 0.75 (which can also be written as 75/100), move the decimal point two places over and add a percent sign: 0.75 → 75%

Finding percentage with two numbers:-
Let’s understand what a percentage is. A percentage is a fraction whose denominator (bottom) is 100. So if we say 50%, we mean 50/100 = 1/2 (after canceling).
Finding a percentage of a number is easy: just divide the percentage by 100 and multiply that by the number. We said “percent” means “per 100”, so 50% means 50 per 100, or simply 50 / 100.
So if you want to find 50% of 80, here’s what you do: To find the answer, just divide 50 by 100 and then multiply it by 80 to get 40 (50 / 100 × 80 = 40).
