# What is 87 percent of 1000?

## Answer: 870

Below you can find the procedure and formula used to arrive at the above answer.

#### Steps:

Lets assume 87 percent of 1000 is X.

Therefore, we can also say, X = 87% of 1000

87% can also be written as 87/100, because percent denotes a number per 100.

So, X = 87/100 × 1000

Or, X = 0.87 × 1000

So, X = 870

So, 87% of 1000 is 870

(You may also first multiply 87 with 1000, and then divide by 100 to find the answer, if that's easier for you.)

% of

=

Now that we have calculated the answer, lets verify it using the percentage formula.

### Answer verification

Percentage = Value/Total Value × 100

LHS (Percentage) = 87

RHS = 870/1000 × 100

Or, RHS = 0.87 × 100

So, RHS = 87

We can see that LHS = RHS, hence it's proved.
