Question: 2 is what percent of 16?

Percentage solution with steps:

Step 1: We make the assumption that 16 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\%}={16}.

Step 4: In the same vein, {x\%}={2}.

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

{100\%}={16}(1).

{x\%}={2}(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{16}{2}

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

\frac{x\%}{100\%}=\frac{2}{16}

\Rightarrow{x} = {12.5\%}

Therefore, {2} is {12.5\%} of {16}.
