## (30 is 2 percent of 1500)

### 30 is 2 percent of 1500. Explanation: What does 2 percent or 2% mean?

Percent (%) is an abbreviation for the Latin “per centum”, which means per hundred or for every hundred. So, 2% means 2 out of every 100.

### Methods to calculate "30 is 2 percent of what number" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "30 is 2 percent of what number".

- As given: For 2, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 30, our answer will be X
- 2*X = 100*30 (In Steps 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- X = 100*30/2 = 3000/2 = 1500

#### 30 is 2 percent of 1500

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "30 is 2 percent of what number".

- As given: For 2, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 30, our answer will be X
- 100/x = 2/30 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 100/X = 2/30 or x/100 = 30/2
- X = 30*100/30 = 3000/2 = 1500

#### 30 is 2 percent of 1500

### 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. 30% (read as 30 percent) can also be expressed as 30/100 or 30:100.Example: If 30% (30 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 30 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 30*100 (i.e. $3000) are invested in stocks.

### Percentage sign (%)

The percent (per cent i.e. per hundred) sign % is the standard symbol to indicate a percentage, to signify a number or ratio as a fraction of 100. Related signs include the permille (per thousand) sign ‰ and the permyriad (per ten thousand) sign ‱ (also known as a basis point), which indicate that a number is divided by one thousand or ten thousand, respectively.### Scholarship programs to learn math
