### Methods to calculate "5 is 3 percent of what number" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "5 is 3 percent of what number".

- As given: For 3, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 5, our answer will be X
- 3*X = 100*5 (In Steps 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- X = 100*5/3 = 500/3 = 166.667

#### 5 is 3 percent of 166.667

### 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. 5% (read as 5 percent) can also be expressed as 5/100 or 5:100.Example: If 5% (5 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 5 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 5*100 (i.e. $500) are invested in stocks.

Related signs include the permille (per thousand) sign ‰ and the permyriad (per ten thousand) sign ‱ (also known as a basis point), which indicate that a number is divided by one thousand or ten thousand, respectively.### Scholarship programs to learn math
