Here we will show you how to calculate what percent was used to get 5 from 20.|
To get the answer, you multiply 5 by 100 and then divide it by 20. Here is the
formula to illustrate better:
(100 * X)/Y = Percent
If you insert X = 5 and Y = 20 into the formula above, you get:
(100 * 5)/20 = 25%
Therefore, the answer to the question "5 is what percent of 20?" is as follows:
5 is 25 percent of 20
We double-checked our answer above by calculating 25 percent of 20. When we did this, the
answer was 5, which confirms that our math above is correct. (Note that the answer on this page may be rounded.)
5 is what percent of 21?
