Question: 3 is what percent of 18?

Percentage solution with steps:

Step 1: We make the assumption that 18 is 100% since it is our output value.

Step 2: We next represent the value we seek with {x}.

Step 3: From step 1, it follows that {100\%}={18}.

Step 4: In the same vein, {x\%}={ 3}.

Step 5: This gives us a pair of simple equations:

{100\%}={18}(1).

{x\%}={ 3}(2).

Step 6: By simply dividing equation 1 by equation 2 and taking note of the fact that both the LHS
(left hand side) of both equations have the same unit (%); we have

\frac{100\%}{x\%}=\frac{18}{ 3}

Step 7: Taking the inverse (or reciprocal) of both sides yields

\frac{x\%}{100\%}=\frac{ 3}{18}

\Rightarrow{x} = {16.67\%}

Therefore, { 3} is {16.67\%} of {18}.

Question: 18 is what percent of 3?

Percentage solution with steps:

Step 1: We make the assumption that 3 is 100% since it is our output value.

Step 2: We next represent the value we seek with {x}.

Step 3: From step 1, it follows that {100\%}={ 3}.

Step 4: In the same vein, {x\%}={18}.

Step 5: This gives us a pair of simple equations:

{100\%}={ 3}(1).

{x\%}={18}(2).

Step 6: By simply dividing equation 1 by equation 2 and taking note of the fact that both the LHS
(left hand side) of both equations have the same unit (%); we have

\frac{100\%}{x\%}=\frac{ 3}{18}

Step 7: Taking the inverse (or reciprocal) of both sides yields

\frac{x\%}{100\%}=\frac{18}{ 3}

\Rightarrow{x} = {600\%}

Therefore, {18} is {600\%} of { 3}.
