###### Asked in Percentages, Fractions, and Decimal Values

### Is x percent of y equal to y percent of x?

Let [x percent of y] = (x/100)*y. And [y percent of x] =
(y/100)*x.
Use the ru
So the first one (x/100)*y = y*(x /100) = y*x/100.
The second one: (y/100)*x = x*(y/100) = x * y / 100, which
equals y*x/100.
So yes they equal the same thing, so they are equal.
