Question: I’m trying to calculate what percentage is 28 out of 30. 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 28 out of 30 in percentage, and how you calculate it.

## What is 28/30 in percentage?

Answer: 28 is 93.33% out of 30.

We have two methods to figure out what is 28/30 in percent, with steps for easy understanding.

### Method 1: Long division with remainder

Calculate $$28:30$$

1. 30 enters into 28, 0 times, remainder 28
Result (ongoing) = 0.
Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 280. Now calculate 280 : 30
2. 30 enters into 280, 9 times, remainder 10
Result (ongoing) = 0.9
Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 100. Now calculate 100 : 30
3. 30 enters into 100, 3 times, remainder 10
Result (ongoing) = 0.93
Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 100. Now calculate 100 : 30
4. 30 enters into 100, 3 times, remainder 10
Result (ongoing) = 0.933
Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 100. Now calculate 100 : 30
5. 30 enters into 100, 3 times, remainder 10
Result (ongoing) = 0.9333
Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 100. Now calculate 100 : 30
6. 30 enters into 100, 3 times, remainder 10
Result (ongoing) = 0.93333
Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 100. Now calculate 100 : 30
7. 30 enters into 100, 3 times, remainder 10
Result (ongoing) = 0.933333
Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 100. Now calculate 100 : 30
8. 30 enters into 100, 3 times, remainder 10
Result (ongoing) = 0.9333333
Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 100. Now calculate 100 : 30
9. 30 enters into 100, 3 times, remainder 10
Result (ongoing) = 0.93333333
Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 100. Now calculate 100 : 30
10. 30 enters into 100, 3 times, remainder 10
Result (ongoing) = 0.933333333
Multiply the remainder by 10 to get 100. Now calculate 100 : 30

Now you multiply the reults by 100 $$(0.933333333 \times 100 = 93.333333333333 )$$ and you get 93.333333333333%.

Solution: 28 out of 30 equals 93.333333333333%.

### Method 2: Using fractions

Calculate $$P(\text{%}) = \frac{ 28 }{ 30 } \times 100$$

1. We need to get the fraction to be of the type $$\frac{ P }{ 100 } \times 100$$

2. In our case we need $$\frac { 28 \times x }{ 30 \times x } \times 100$$

That means $$30 \times x = 100$$

$$x = \frac{100}{ 30 } = 3.3333333333333$$

3. Our fraction is now $$\frac { 28 \times 3.3333333333333 }{ 30 \times 3.3333333333333 } \times 100$$

4. We know that the denominator $$30 \times 3.3333333333333 = 100$$ so we construct the fraction again.

$$P = \frac { 28 \times 3.3333333333333 }{100} \times 100$$
$$= 28 \times 3.3333333333333$$

5. Since $$28 \times 3.3333333333333 = 93.333333333333$$, we have our result
$$P = 93.333333333333$$.

Solution: 28 out of 30 equals 93.333333333333%.
