# 11 is 1 percent of what number?

## 1100

## (11 is 1 percent of 1100)

### 11 is 1 percent of 1100. Explanation: What does 1 percent or 1% mean?

Percent (%) is an abbreviation for the Latin “per centum”, which means per hundred or for every hundred. So, 1% means 1 out of every 100.

### Methods to calculate "11 is 1 percent of what number" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "11 is 1 percent of what number".

- As given: For 1, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 11, our answer will be X
- 1*X = 100*11 (In Steps 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- X = 100*11/1 = 1100/1 = 1100

#### 11 is 1 percent of 1100

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "11 is 1 percent of what number".

- As given: For 1, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 11, our answer will be X
- 100/x = 1/11 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 100/X = 1/11 or x/100 = 11/1
- X = 11*100/11 = 1100/1 = 1100

#### 11 is 1 percent of 1100

### 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. 11% (read as 11 percent) can also be expressed as 11/100 or 11:100.Example: If 11% (11 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 11 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 11*100 (i.e. $1100) are invested in stocks.

### Calculate percentages in your head

At times you need to calculate a tip in a restaurant, or how to split money between friends in your head, that is without any calculator or pen and paper.Many a time, it is quite easy if you break it down to smaller chunks. You should know how to find 1%, 10% and 50%. After that finding percentages becomes pretty easy.

- To find 5%, find 10% and divide it by two
- To find 11%, find 10%, then find 1%, then add both values
- To find 15%, find 10%, then add 5%
- To find 20%, find 10% and double it
- To find 25%, find 50% and then halve it
- To find 26%, find 25% as above, then find 1%, and then add these two values
- To find 60%, find 50% and add 10%
- To find 75%, find 50% and add 25%
- To find 95%, find 5% and then deduct it from the number
