Re: %

hi Zeeshan 01

What percent of 25 is 5?

This is the same as asking "If 5 apples out of 25 are bad, what percent is that?"

This screen shot from the percentage page shows how to do this.  And there is also an interactive calculator which will allow you to experiment with percentage values.  I've added that to the screen shot and put a red border around it.  You can change the 80 to 25, and move the slider until it reads ??% = 5.

Hope that helps,

Bob
