### Methods to calculate "47 is 2 percent of what number" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "47 is 2 percent of what number".

- As given: For 2, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 47, our answer will be X
- 2*X = 100*47 (In Steps 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- X = 100*47/2 = 4700/2 = 2350

#### 47 is 2 percent of 2350

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "47 is 2 percent of what number".

- As given: For 2, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 47, our answer will be X
- 100/x = 2/47 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 100/X = 2/47 or x/100 = 47/2
- X = 47*100/47 = 4700/2 = 2350

#### 47 is 2 percent of 2350

### 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. 47% (read as 47 percent) can also be expressed as 47/100 or 47:100.Example: If 47% (47 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 47 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 47*100 (i.e. $4700) are invested in stocks.

### Percentage sign (%)

The percent (per cent i.e. per hundred) sign % is the standard symbol to indicate a percentage, to signify a number or ratio as a fraction of 100. Related signs include the permille (per thousand) sign ‰ and the permyriad (per ten thousand) sign ‱ (also known as a basis point), which indicate that a number is divided by one thousand or ten thousand, respectively.### Scholarship programs to learn math
