@ malika arjun :

Can you give some formula to calculate percentage easily like.

I divide 9*5700/8*8550 then it comes finally 57/76, to this its a lengthy process. Give some sort calculation formula.

(((9/100)*5700)/((8/100)*8500))/100=75%

10 percentage of 5700 is 570 how to calculate 9 percentage quickly?

10%-1% = 9%.

So,
5700*10% = 570.
5700*1% = 57.

570-57 = 513 or 5700*9/100 = 513.

{[(9% of 100)*5700/(8% of 100)*8550]*100}% = {[9/100*8*100*5700*8550]*100}%.

={[29/38]*100}%.

= {0.76*100}%.

= Approx 76%.
