Question: 1.5 is what percent of 5?

Percentage solution with steps:

Step 1: We make the assumption that 5 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\%}={5}.

Step 4: In the same vein, {x\%}={1.5}.

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

{100\%}={5}(1).

{x\%}={1.5}(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{5}{1.5}

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

\frac{x\%}{100\%}=\frac{1.5}{5}

\Rightarrow{x} = {30\%}

Therefore, {1.5} is {30\%} of {5}.
