Question: 230 is what percent of 50?

Percentage solution with steps:

Step 1: We make the assumption that 50 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\%}={ 50}.

Step 4: In the same vein, {x\%}={ 230}.

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

{100\%}={ 50}(1).

{x\%}={ 230}(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{ 50}{ 230}

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

\frac{x\%}{100\%}=\frac{ 230}{ 50}

\Rightarrow{x} = {460\%}

Therefore, { 230} is {460\%} of { 50}.
