Question: 4000 is what percent of 20000?

Percentage solution with steps:

Step 1: We make the assumption that 20000 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\%}={ 20000}.

Step 4: In the same vein, {x\%}={4000}.

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

{100\%}={ 20000}(1).

{x\%}={4000}(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{ 20000}{4000}

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

\frac{x\%}{100\%}=\frac{4000}{ 20000}

\Rightarrow{x} = {20\%}

Therefore, {4000} is {20\%} of { 20000}.
