(v) Find :
(a) 8% of 160km         
(b)6% of 225
Solution:
(a)  8% of 160km =\mathrm{\frac{8}{100} \, of\, 160km =\frac{8}{100} \times 160km = \frac{64}{5}km = 12.8km}

(b)  6% of 225 = \frac{6}{100}\times 225= \frac{27}{2}= 13.50

(vi) What % of 85 is 17  ?. 
Solution :  Let x% of 85 is 17 . Then \frac{x}{100}\times 85=17
\Rightarrow 85x = 1700
\Rightarrow x= \frac{1700}{85}
\Rightarrow x= 20%
