# What is 20 percent of 50?

The Percentage of any given real number is defined as the relative real value which represents the hundredths parts of that given real number. It is represented by the symbol “%”.

One Percent (expressed as 1%) corresponds to the hundredth part. Fifty Percent (expressed as 50%) corresponds to half of the given quantity and Hundred Percent (expressed as 100%) corresponds to the complete given quantity.

Percentages are usually used to express portions or fractions of quantities. It is calculated by using the following formula:

Percentage = (Percent Value / Total Value) x 100

The aim of this article is to find the percent of the given value from the total value.

## Solution: What is 20 percent of 50?

The 20 percent of 50 is 10.

The Percentage is defined as the fraction of a hundred, 100 which can be expressed in the form of a ratio or a number. It has no unit or dimension and is only represented by the symbol “%”. In order to find the percent of a given number or quantity, we rearrange the above equation as follows:

Percent Value = (Percentage x Total Value) / 100

## How To Calculate 20% of 50?

Following is the step-by-step procedure for calculating the percent value from the given percentage and total number.

## Step 1

Given that:

Percentage = 20 %

Total Value = 50

Percent Value =?

## Step 2

Let’s assume that the Percent Value is “X”.

## Step 3

We will use the formula for calculating the Percent Value as follows:

Percentage = (Percent Value / Total Value) x 100

By rearranging this expression for finding Percent Value, we get the following expression:

Percent Value = (Percentage x Total Value) / 100

Substituting the given values and the assumed value in the above equation:

X = (20 x 50) / 100

Solving the above equation:

X = 1000 / 100

We will further solve and simplify this fraction o get the Percent Value:

X = 10

So:

Percent Value = 10

Therefore, 20 % of 50 is 10.

## Step 4

Figure 1

The above figure shows the Pie Chart to express what is 20% of 50.  If we divide the total value of 50 into 100 equal parts, the blue region represents the 20% value of 50 which is equal to 10 and the remaining portion of 100 parts is 80% which occupies the orange region.

# What Is 20 Percent of 50 + Solution With Free Steps?

20 percent of 50 results in 10. The fraction 20/100 multiplied with 50 generates the solution 10.

Such a calculation could be helpful in a variety of real-world scenarios. Consider wanting to buy your favorite bike from your favorite store, but it was out of your price range. Assume the bike’s initial purchase price was 50 dollars. The merchant unexpectedly announces a 20% discount. To determine the new selling price, you must first determine the value of the remaining 20% of 50 when you know that 20% of 50 equals 10, deciding whether or not to buy the item becomes much more accessible.

The solution to 20 percent of 50 that results 10 is the focus of this article.

## What is 20 percent of 50?

20% of 50 equals 10. The product of 20/100 and 50 returns 10.

The problem 20 percent of 50 is also solved by replacing 20% with 20/100 and then multiplying 20/100 with 50 to get 10. In this way 20 percent of 10 generates the same 10 value.

## How To Calculate 20% of 50?

To calculate 20 percent of 50, there are intermediate forms of 20% x 50, 20/100 x 50 and 20 x 50 / 100 explained below.

Given that:

### Step 1

Writing 20 percent of 50 in mathematical form:

20 percent of 50 = 20% x 50

### Step 2

Substitute the % symbol in 20% x 50 with the fraction 1/100:

20 percent of 50 = ( 20 x 1/100 ) x 50

### Step 3

Rearranging the ( 20 x 1/100 ) x 50:

20 percent of 50 = ( 20 x 50 ) / 100

### Step 4

Multiplying 20 with 50:

20 percent of 50 = ( 1000 ) / 100

### Step 5

Dividing 1000 by 100:

20 percent of 50 = 10

Therefore, the 20 percent of 50 is equivalent to 10.

We can visualize that 20 percent of 50 is equal to 10 by using the following pie chart.

Figure 1: 20 percent of 50

As shown in 20 percent of 50 Chart, 100 percent of 50 is represented by the complete pie. The 20 percent of 50 with absolute value of 10 is shown in the dark orange portion. The 50 percent of 50 with absolute value of 36 is shown in the yellow portion.

Percentage is a technique in mathematics as in its worth for gauging different values through use of recognizable scale covering from 0 to 100.
