### Methods to calculate "What percent of 4 is 12" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "What percent of 4 is 12"

- For 4, our answer will be 12
- For 100, our answer will be x
- 4*x = 100*12 (In Step 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- x = 100*12/4 = 1200/4 = 300

#### 300% of 4 is 12

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "What percent of 4 is 12"

- For 4, our answer will be 12
- For 100, our answer will be x
- 12/x = 4/100 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 4/100 = 12/x or x/12 = 100/4
- x = 12*100/4 = 1200/4 = 300

#### 300% of 4 is 12

### 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. 4% (read as 4 percent) can also be expressed as 4/100 or 4:100.Example: If 4% (4 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 4 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 4*100 (i.e. $400) are invested in stocks.

### Percentage sign (%)

The percent (per cent i.e. per hundred) sign % is the standard symbol to indicate a percentage, to signify a number or ratio as a fraction of 100. 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
