We have 15 = 100% and X = 5%. So our fraction will look like:

15
/
X
=
100%
/
5%

Now we can solve our fraction by writing it as an equation:

X = (15 × 5) ÷ 100

X = 0.75

Therefore, 5% of 15 is 0.75


Another way to solve our problem is to find the value of 1% of the number and then multiply it by the number of percent (5). To find 1% of a number 15 you need to divide it by 100:
