Chapter 6: Percents Section 3 Finding a Percent of a Number

3
California Standards Number Sense 1.4: Calculate given percentages of quantities. Mathematical Reasoning 3.2: Note the method of deriving the solution and demonstrate a conceptual understanding of the derivation by solving similar problems.

4
Language of the Discipline Percent: A RATIO that compares a number to 100 Fraction: A mathematical term that describes a PART to WHOLE relationship. Here, the value on the top is the NUMERATOR and the value on the bottom is the DENOMINATOR. Simplest Terms: A mathematical term that asks for FRACTIONS to be taken down to the SIMPLEST or LOWEST terms. Here, find a GCF of the two values and divide NUMERATOR and DENOMINATOR by the same value to get to the SIMPLEST TERM. Decimal: The mathematical equivalent of a Fraction, Ratio, Percent that utilizes place value. Expression: A mathematical problem or given situation. Compatible Numbers: Compatible Numbers are used when estimating. Here, you find the closest values or fractions to make working with a problem easier. Estimate: To round up or down, using place value. Here, goal is to find values that are easier to work with.

Finding a Percent of a Number To find a Percent of a Number, it is actually a very straight-forward and easy function to carry out. There are two suggested methods to solve. Method #1: Write the PERCENT as a FRACTION. Remember that PERCENTS can be written as FRACTIONS. Use the FRACTION and MULTIPLY by the Number. Here, you will be using CPP or EF to correctly solve. Method #2: Write the PERCENT as a DECIMAL Remember that PERCENTS can be written as DECIMALS. Use the DECIMAL and MULTIPLY by the Number. Here, simple multiplication will allow for you to solve correctly..

Examples of Finding A Percent of a Number Example #1: Find 30% of 80. Method #1: Percents as Fractions 30% = 30/100-Percent to Fraction Form 30/100 = 3/10-Fraction Simplified to Lowest Terms (3/10)(80)-Fraction is Multiplied by the Number (3/10)(80/1)-Whole Number is put over 1 240/10 = 24-Multiply across and then divide OR Use Cross Products to REDUCE then Multiply Method #2: Percents as Decimals 30% = 0.30-Convert the Percent to a Decimal (80)(0.30)-Decimal is Multiplied by the Number (80)(0.30) = 24 -Resulting Product is the Answer Note: BOTH Methods yield the SAME Answer. Use whichever Method you are most comfortable with OR use Method #1 to initially solve and Method #2 for your Double-Check.

Examples of Finding A Percent of a Number Example #2: Find 60% of 700. Method #1: Percents as Fractions 60% = 60/100-Percent to Fraction Form 60/100 = 3/5-Fraction Simplified to the Lowest Term (3/5)(700)-Fraction is Multiplied by the Number (3/5)(700/1)-Put the Whole Number over 1 2100/5 = 420 -Multiply across and then divide OR Use Cross Products to REDUCE then Multiply Method #2: Percents as Decimals 60% = 0.60-Convert the Percent to a Decimal (700)(0.60)-Decimal is Multiplied by the Number (700)(0.60) = 420 -Resulting Product is the Answer

8
Examples of Finding A Percent of a Number Example #3: Find 55% of 300. Method #1: Percents as Fractions 55% = 55/100-Percent to Fraction Form 55/100 = 11/20-Fraction Simplified to the Lowest Term (11/20)(300)-Fraction is Multiplied by the Number (11/20)(300/1)-Put the Whole Number over 1 3300/20 = 165-Multiply across and then divide OR Use Cross Products to REDUCE then Multiply Method #2: Percents as Decimals 55% = 0.55-Convert the Percent to a Decimal (300)(0.55)-Decimal is Multiplied by the Number (300)(0.55) = 165 -Resulting Product is the Answer

9
Examples of Finding A Percent of a Number Example #4: Find 12.5% of 64. Method #1: Percents as Fractions 12.5% = 12.5/100-Percent to Fraction Form 12.5/100 = 1/8-Fraction Simplified to the Lowest Term (1/8)(64)-Fraction is Multiplied by the Number (1/8)(64/1)-Put the Whole Number over 1 64/8 = 8 -Multiply across and then divide OR Use Cross Products to REDUCE then Multiply Method #2: Percents as Decimals 12.5% = 0.125-Convert the Percent to a Decimal (64)(0.125)-Decimal is Multiplied by the Number (64)(0.125) = 8 -Resulting Product is the Answer

10
Examples of Finding A Percent of a Number Example #5: Find 52% of 200. Method #1: Percents as Fractions 52% = 52/100-Percent to Fraction Form 52/100 = 13/25-Fraction Simplified to the Lowest Term (13/25)(200)-Fraction is Multiplied by the Number (13/25)(200/1)-Put the Whole Number over 1 2600/25 = 104 -Multiply across and then divide OR Use Cross Products to REDUCE then Multiply Method #2: Percents as Decimals 52% = 0.52-Convert the Percent to a Decimal (200)(0.52)-Decimal is Multiplied by the Number (200)(0.52) = 104 -Resulting Product is the Answer

11
Quick Review The Basis for Finding a Percent of a Number is MULTPLICATION!!! Here there are 2 Methods. Method #1: Using Percents as Fractions Convert the Percent to a FRACTION in the Simplest Terms. Use the Fraction and MULTIPLY by the Number. Resulting PRODUCT will be your ANSWER. Method #2: Using Percents as Decimals Convert the Percent to a DECIMAL. Use the Decimal and MULTIPLY by the Number. Resulting PRODUCT will be your ANSWER.
