**Question**: I’m trying to calculate what percentage is 20 out of 25. How do I do that?

**MathBlog**: A percent tells us how many parts out of 100 something is. To write a percent as a fraction, just remove the percent symbol and write the number over 100 as the denominator. Below we explain what is 20 out of 25 in percentage, and how you calculate it.

## What is 20/25 in percentage?

**Answer**: 20 is 80% out of 25.

We have two methods to figure out what is 20/25 in percent, with steps for easy understanding.

### Method 1: Long division with remainder

Calculate \( 20:25 \)

- 25 enters into 20,
`0 times`

, remainder 20`Result (ongoing) =`

**0.**

Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 200. Now calculate 200 : 25 - 25 enters into 200,
`8 times`

, remainder 0

Remainder = 0, means you're done.`Result (final) =`

**0.8**

Now you multiply the reults by 100 \( (0.8 \times 100 = 80 ) \) and you get 80%.

**Solution**: 20 out of 25 equals 80%.

### Method 2: Using fractions

Calculate \( P(\text{%}) = \frac{ 20 }{ 25 } \times 100 \)

We need to get the fraction to be of the type \( \frac{ P }{ 100 } \times 100 \)

In our case we need \( \frac { 20 \times x }{ 25 \times x } \times 100 \)

That means \( 25 \times x = 100 \)

\( x = \frac{100}{ 25 } = 4 \)

Our fraction is now \( \frac { 20 \times 4 }{ 25 \times 4 } \times 100 \)

We know that the denominator \( 25 \times 4 = 100 \) so we construct the fraction again.

\( P = \frac { 20 \times 4 }{100} \times 100 \)

\(= 20 \times 4 \)Since \( 20 \times 4 = 80 \), we have our result

\( P = 80 \).

**Solution**: 20 out of 25 equals 80%.
