Percent (%) is an abbreviation for the Latin “per centum”, which means per hundred or for every hundred. So, 1% means 1 out of every 100.

### Methods to calculate "79 is 1 percent of what number" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "79 is 1 percent of what number".

- As given: For 1, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 79, our answer will be X
- 1*X = 100*79 (In Steps 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- X = 100*79/1 = 7900/1 = 7900

#### 79 is 1 percent of 7900

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "79 is 1 percent of what number".

- As given: For 1, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 79, our answer will be X
- 100/x = 1/79 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 100/X = 1/79 or x/100 = 79/1
- X = 79*100/79 = 7900/1 = 7900

#### 79 is 1 percent of 7900

### 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. 79% (read as 79 percent) can also be expressed as 79/100 or 79:100.Example: If 79% (79 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 79 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 79*100 (i.e. $7900) are invested in stocks.

### Calculate percentages in your head

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
