What is 55% of 88?
55% of 88 55 * 88/100 calculate :)
55 88 --> 55x+8800 x=160 100 x
x% of y = \(\huge{\frac{x}{100}*y}\) similarly : \[\huge{\frac{55}{100}*88}\]
There's an easy way of doing this without a calculator. 1) take 50% of 88... divide it in half. 2) now add 5%. Because 50% is easy to calculate, you can divide this number by 10 to find 5%. 3) Add them together!
^^ So, without using a calculator, I get: \[88\div2=44\] then, \[44\div10=4.4\] Thus, \[44 + 4.4=48.4\]
