Enter the population of a given race and the total population of all races into the Race Percentage Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Race Percentage.

## Race Percentage Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Race Percentage.

RP = RP / TP * 100

Variables:

- RP is the Race Percentage (%)
- RP is the population of a given race
- TP is the total population of all races

To calculate a race percentage, divide the population of a given race by the total population of all races, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Race Percentage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Race Percentage.

- First, determine the population of a given race.
- Next, determine the total population of all races.
- Next, gather the formula from above = RP = RP / TP * `100.
- Finally, calculate the Race Percentage.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

population of a given race = 5,000

total population of all races = 10,000

RP = RP / TP * `100** **= ?
