# 41 is what percent of 205?

Jan 5, 2017

20%

#### Explanation:

Considering the percent value as $x$, we write:

$205 \times \frac{x}{100} = 41$

Multiply both sides by $\frac{100}{205}$.

$x = 41 \times \frac{100}{205}$

$x = \cancel{41} \times \frac{100}{5 \cancel{205}}$

$x = \frac{100}{5}$

$x = 20$
