  • Since a percent is literally a fraction with 100 as a denominator, simply determine what number you have to divide 100000 by to get to 100, then divide 5 by that same amount.

    100000 divided by 1000 equals 100.

    5 divided by 1000 equals .005

    Your answer is therefore, .005%

    An easier way to these, when the denominator is a nice, round multiple of 100, is to simply count the number of places you have to move the decimal in order to change it to 100. In this case, that answer would be three. Now, do the same to the 5 – move the decimal 3 places to the left, and you get the same answer of .005%

  • 5/100000 x 100 = 500/100000 = 5/1000 = 0.5/100 = 0.005%
