I want to know how do find a percent of something, just in general-the formula or whatever, and how to make something into a fraction.

Percent= piece/whole * 100

So...something like 439 divided by 612x100? (That's not the actual problem, though)

yes that is it.

Example: what percent is 25 of 45?

25/45 * 100= 56 percent
