### Methods to calculate "100 is 18 percent of what number" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "100 is 18 percent of what number".

- As given: For 18, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 100, our answer will be X
- 18*X = 100*100 (In Steps 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- X = 100*100/18 = 10000/18 = 555.556

#### 100 is 18 percent of 555.556

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "100 is 18 percent of what number".

- As given: For 18, our answer will be 100
- Assume: For 100, our answer will be X
- 100/x = 18/100 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 100/X = 18/100 or x/100 = 100/18
- X = 100*100/100 = 10000/18 = 555.556

#### 100 is 18 percent of 555.556

### History of Percentage

Before the Europeans learned about the decimal system, ancient Romans used fractions in the multiples of 1/100. An example was when Augustus levied a tax of 1/100 called centesima rerum venalium on goods sold at auctions. Computation with these fractions was similar to percentages.In the Middle Ages, denominator of 100 became more common. By the 16th century, as decimal system became more common, use of percentage became a standard. It was used to compute profit and loss, interest rates etc.
