### Methods to calculate "What percent of 32 is 5" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "What percent of 32 is 5"

- For 32, our answer will be 5
- For 100, our answer will be x
- 32*x = 100*5 (In Step 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- x = 100*5/32 = 500/32 = 15.625

#### 15.625% of 32 is 5

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "What percent of 32 is 5"

- For 32, our answer will be 5
- For 100, our answer will be x
- 5/x = 32/100 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 32/100 = 5/x or x/5 = 100/32
- x = 5*100/32 = 500/32 = 15.625

#### 15.625% of 32 is 5

### Percentage examples

Percentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 32% (read as 32 percent) can also be expressed as 32/100 or 32:100.Example: If 32% (32 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 32 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 32*100 (i.e. $3200) are invested in stocks.

- To find 11%, find 10%, then find 1%, then add both values
- To find 15%, find 10%, then add 5%
- To find 20%, find 10% and double it
- To find 25%, find 50% and then halve it
- To find 26%, find 25% as above, then find 1%, and then add these two values
- To find 60%, find 50% and add 10%
- To find 75%, find 50% and add 25%
- To find 95%, find 5% and then deduct it from the number
