Andrea's Percent Post

What is percent?
Percent means..
  • Is an equivalent fraction out of a 100.
For example, 45% (read as "forty-five percent") is equal to 45/100, or 0.45. 

1.)If you have a question like:
What is 25% of 80?
you can solve that by using T- chart.
          
100/80
25 / 20
to solve this you will have to divide 100 by 4 to get 25%, you have to divide by 4 in the other side so it's equal, so you divide 80 by 4 which give you 20.

% --> D --> F

750% = 7.5 = 7 1/2

12 3/4% = 12.75 or 0.1275 = 1275

1. 20% of 60
Calculator:              Mental math:
60/100 = 0.6 x 20 = 12   #     % 
                         60 |100
                                                                     /10                                 /10
                                                                                          6    | 10
                                                                             / 6                                     /6
                                                           12   | 20 
2. 0.1% of 40
Calculator:                 Mental math:
40/100 = 0.4 x 0.1 = 0.004  #      %
                            40 |100
                        /100             /100
                            0.4 | 1 
                        /10 0.04 |0.1 /10
3. 250% of 400
Calculator:                Mental math:
400/100 = 4 x 250 = 1,000  #      %
                           400|100
                        x 2              x 2 
                                    800|200
                           /4              / 4
                          200 | 50
                         __________
                         1000 | 250
5.    
Combining percent

 PS4- $385   Discount- 15%
To find the sale price you have to subtract 15 by a 100.
100-15 = 85
So now the sale price is 85.
Then divide the discount by 100.
Which gives you 0.15.
Now you multiply by how much the PS4 cost,and it will give you an answer of 57,75.
(0.15 x 385 = 57.75)

Then you subtract 385 by 57.77, which gives you 327.23.
(385-57.77= 327.23)
You will pay $ 327.23.

Percent means.......
 percent is a french word. "per" means out of  and cent means "100" 

 equivelent fraction out 100 

100 percent means all, whole everything  40/40 or 100/100


50 percent means half of the whole

25 percent means a quarter of the whole 

1 percent means one piece of the whole 

 we use 100 for percentage because it is just right.



1) 3/40 = 0.075/1 = 75 out of one hundred or 75 percent

2) 5.98/1 = 598/100 or 598 percent   598/1000

3) 750 percent/100 = 7.5 = 7 5/10 or 7 1/2


180%
 12 3/4 percent
0.7%
convert from decimals to fractions to percents.
26%
26/100=0.26
26out of one hundred.

7/10
7/10=0.7
0.7x100=70%

0.024
0.024x100=2.4out of one hundred
2.4x100=0.024

Mental Math and  a  Calculator
20% of 60 = 12
100/5=20
60/5=12

0.1% of 40=0.4
40/100=0.4

250% of 400=1000
400x2.5=1000


Discounts
q.3 pg.148
kyle is not correct because when you use the 15% and 10% it adds up to being less than the 30%.

What is a percent?

A percent is .....

A percent is an equivalent fraction out of 100

For Example.  25% means one quarter, 10/40 or 0.25

What is 20% of 400

You can use a T-Chart

                                      
      %                 #
                                     

     100      /       400
D5(
     20      /          80

You can solve this by dividing 100 by 5 = 20 and dividing 400 by 5 = 4x of what you got from dividing 100 by 5

Representing Percents


Converting

(Fractions,Decimals,Percents)  3/40 3 Divided by 4 = 0.075/1= 7.5/100 or 7.5%

(Decimals,Percents,Fractions)  0,0064/1 = 0.64/100 or 64% 0.0064/10000 = 64/10000
                                                                                                                        32/5000
                                                                                                                        16/2500
                                                                                                                        8/1250
                                                                                                                        4/625
                                                                                     
(Percents,Decimals,Fractions)  750%/100 Divided by 100 = 7.5 7 5/10 or 7 1/2
