### Problem: 5000 is 20 percent of what number?

Solution:

One way to calculate percentages is to use this general percentage formula:

If you know any two values of the formula, you can calculate the third one. In this example, you know the "part" (5000) and the "percentage" (20%). So, you can find the "whole".

By replacing the given values in the formula, you get:

 20 = 5000 100 whole

Cross-multiply:

20 × whole = 5000 × 100

Divide by 20 and get the whole:

 whole = 5000 × 100 = 25000 20
