- For 100, our answer will be 48
- For 33, our answer will be x
- 100/33 = 48/x (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 48/x = 100/33 or x/48 = 33/100
- x = 33*48/100 = 1584/100 = 15.84

#### Answer: 48 percent of 33 is 15.84

#### Method 3: Converting Percentage to Decimal to calculate 48 percent of 33

- Find the decimal equivalent of 48 i.e. 48/100 = 0.48

### 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. 48% (read as 48 percent) can also be expressed as 48/100 or 48:100.Example: If 48% (48 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 48 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 48*100 (i.e. $4800) are invested in stocks.

At times you need to calculate a tip in a restaurant, or how to split money between friends in your head, that is without any calculator or pen and paper.Many a time, it is quite easy if you break it down to smaller chunks. You should know how to find 1%, 10% and 50%. After that finding percentages becomes pretty easy.

- To find 5%, find 10% and divide it by two
- To find 11%, find 10%, then find 1%, then add both values
- 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%
- To find 75%, find 50% and add 25%
- To find 95%, find 5% and then deduct it from the number
