### Methods to calculate "What is 5 percent of 11" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate 5 percent of 11.

- For 100, our answer will be 5
- For 11, our answer will be x
- 100*x = 5*11 (In Step 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- x = 5*11/100 = 55/100 = 0.55

#### Answer: 5 percent of 11 is 0.55

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate 5 percent of 11

- For 100, our answer will be 5
- For 11, our answer will be x
- 100/11 = 5/x (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 5/x = 100/11 or x/5 = 11/100
- x = 11*5/100 = 55/100 = 0.55

#### Answer: 5 percent of 11 is 0.55

#### Method 3: Converting Percentage to Decimal to calculate 5 percent of 11

- Find the decimal equivalent of 5 i.e. 5/100 = 0.05
- Multiply the decimal equivalent (above) to the given number i.e. 11*0.05 = 0.55

#### Answer: 5 percent of 11 is 0.55

### 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. 5% (read as 5 percent) can also be expressed as 5/100 or 5:100.Example: If 5% (5 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 5 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 5*100 (i.e. $500) 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
