How do You Work Out Percentages?

Working out percentages is an easy equation when you know how. For example lets say you want to know what the percent is for 49 out of 230. First you need to divide the smaller number by the bigger number so 49 divided by 230 is 0.21. Now you simply times this by 100 to get 21, or 21%. An easy way to remember it is (x/y)*100%
