# Percentage Calculator

Instructions: Use this step-by-step percentage calculator to compute what percentage a number $$D$$ is of another number $$X$$. Please provide the required information in the form below: The number $$D$$ (number or fraction) = The other number $$X$$ (number or fraction) =

You will compute what percentage is $$D$$ of $$X$$

## Calculator of Percentages

The calculation of what percentage a number $$D$$ is of another number $$X$$ is quite simple, and involves some elementary operations.

### How Do You Compute a Percentage

We compute the required percentage by simply using the following formula:

$\text{Percentage} = \displaystyle\frac{D}{X} \times 100$

Simple as that. You take the value of the number $$D$$ and you divide it by $$X$$. Then, the result of that division you multiply by 100 and you get the desired percentage.

### Example of a percentage calculator

Example: What percentage is 13 of 38?

Using the above formula, we get:

$\text{Percentage} = \displaystyle\frac{13}{38} \times 100$ $= 0.342105263 \times 100$ $= 34.21 \%$

### Is This Related to a Fraction to Percentage Calculator?

Absolutely, this is related to computing fraction to percentage . In a way, it is the same thing. Indeed, in this case, all we are doing is checking what is the fraction $$\frac{D}{X}$$ as a percentage.

Or in other words, compute what percentage is $$D$$ of $$X$$ is the same as computing what percentage corresponds to the fraction $$\frac{D}{X}$$.
