#### Solution for 5000 is what percent of 1000:

5000:1000*100 =

(5000*100):1000 =

500000:1000 = 500

Now we have: 5000 is what percent of 1000 = 500

Question: 5000 is what percent of 1000?

Percentage solution with steps:

Step 1: We make the assumption that 1000 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\%}={1000}.

Step 4: In the same vein, {x\%}={5000}.

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

{100\%}={1000}(1).

{x\%}={5000}(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{1000}{5000}

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

\frac{x\%}{100\%}=\frac{5000}{1000}

\Rightarrow{x} = {500\%}

Therefore, {5000} is {500\%} of {1000}.
