### Methods to calculate "24 is 1 percent of what number" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "24 is 1 percent of what number".

- As given: For 1, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 24, our answer will be X
- 1*X = 100*24 (In Steps 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- X = 100*24/1 = 2400/1 = 2400

#### 24 is 1 percent of 2400

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "24 is 1 percent of what number".

- As given: For 1, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 24, our answer will be X
- 100/x = 1/24 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 100/X = 1/24 or x/100 = 24/1
- X = 24*100/24 = 2400/1 = 2400

#### 24 is 1 percent of 2400

### 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. 24% (read as 24 percent) can also be expressed as 24/100 or 24:100.Example: If 24% (24 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 24 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 24*100 (i.e. $2400) 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
