### Methods to calculate "35 is 5 percent of what number" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "35 is 5 percent of what number".

- As given: For 5, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 35, our answer will be X
- 5*X = 100*35 (In Steps 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- X = 100*35/5 = 3500/5 = 700

#### 35 is 5 percent of 700

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "35 is 5 percent of what number".

- As given: For 5, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 35, our answer will be X
- 100/x = 5/35 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 100/X = 5/35 or x/100 = 35/5
- X = 35*100/35 = 3500/5 = 700

#### 35 is 5 percent of 700

### 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. 35% (read as 35 percent) can also be expressed as 35/100 or 35:100.Example: If 35% (35 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 35 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 35*100 (i.e. $3500) are invested in stocks.

- 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%
