Answer: 20 percent of 67 is 13.4

## Fastest method for calculating 20 percent of 67 (20% of 67)

Assume the unknown value is 'Y'

Y = 20 x 67%

Y = 20 x 67 / 100

Y = 13.4

### What are percentages

Percentages are similar to fractions with an important difference. In fractions the whole is represented by the denominator (e.g. the number 5 in the fraction of 1/5). In percentages, the whole is represented by the number 100. In fact, 'per cent' means 'per 100' or 'for each 100'.

### How to solve

To solve the problem above, let's convert it into equation form: __ = 20% x 67

In this example, the number 67 represents the whole and so, as a percentage, it would be equal to 100%. Written as a ratio, we would get: 100% : 67

If a student took a 67 question test and they got every answer correct, as a percentage they would get a 100% score on the test.

In our problem we have to evaluate the 20 percent of 67. For now, let's call this unknown value 'Y'. Written as a ratio, we would get: 20% : Y

To see a relationship between these two ratios, let's combine them into an equation: 100% : 67 = 20% : Y

It is critical that both of the % values should be on the same side of a ratio. For instance, if you decide to put the % value on the right side of a ratio, then the other % value should also be on the right side of its ratio.

'67 : 100% and Y : 20%' is correct.
'67 : 100% and 20% : Y' is wrong.

Let's solve the equation for Y by first rewriting it as: 100% / 67 = 20% / Y

Drop the percentage marks to simplify your calculations: 100 / 67 = 20 / Y

Multiply both sides by Y to transfer it on the left side of the equation: Y ( 100 / 67 ) = 20

To isolate Y, multiply both sides by 67 / 100, we will have: Y = 20 ( 67 / 100 )

Computing the right side, we get: Y = 13.4

This leaves us with our final answer: 20% of 67 is 13.4
