6-5 Solving Percents Problems
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Sloths may seem lazy, but their extremely slow movement helps to make them almost invisible to predators. Sloths sleep an average of 16.5 hours a day. To find out what percent of a 24-hour day 16.5 hours is, you can use a proportion or an equation.

6-5 Solving Percents Problems Proportion Method Equation Method Part n
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Proportion Method Equation Method Part n 16.5 Part = What percent of 24 is 16.5? Whole 100 24 Whole n · 24 = 100 · 16.5 n · 24 = 16.5 24n = 1,650 n = n = 68.75 n = 68.75% Sloths spend about 69% of the day sleeping!

6-5 Solving Percents Problems
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Additional Example 1A: Using Proportions to Solve Problems with Percents Solve. What percent of 40 is 25? n 100 = 25 40 Write a proportion. n · 40 = 100 · 25 Set the cross products equal. 40n = 2,500 Multiply. 40n 40 = 2,500 40 Divide each side by 40 to isolate the variable. n = 62.5 25 is 62.5% of 40.

6-5 Solving Percents Problems
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Additional Example 1B: Using Proportions to Solve Problems with Percents Solve. 15 is 25% of what number? 25 100 = 15 n Write a proportion. n · 25 = 100 · 15 Set the cross products equal. 25n = 1,500 Multiply. 25n 25 = 1,500 25 Divide each side by 25 to isolate the variable. n = 60 15 is 25% of 60.

6-5 Solving Percents Problems Check It Out: Example 1A Solve.
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Check It Out: Example 1A Solve. What percent of 50 is 10? n 100 = 10 50 Write a proportion. n · 50 = 100 · 10 Set the cross products equal. 50n = 1,000 Multiply. 50n 50 = 1,000 50 Divide each side by 50 to isolate the variable. n = 20 10 is 20% of 50.

6-5 Solving Percents Problems Check It Out: Example 1B Solve.
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Check It Out: Example 1B Solve. 8 is 40% of what number? 40 100 = 8 n Write a proportion. n · 40 = 100 · 8 Set the cross products equal. 40n = 800 Multiply. 40n 40 = 800 40 Divide each side by 40 to isolate the variable. n = 20 8 is 40% of 20.

Additional Example 2A: Using Equations to Solve Problems with Percents
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Additional Example 2A: Using Equations to Solve Problems with Percents Solve. 35 is 28% of what number? 35 = 28% · n Write an equation. 35 = 0.28 · n Write 28% as a decimal. 35 0.28 0.28 · n 0.28 Divide each side by 0.28 to isolate the variable. = 125 = n 35 is 28% of 125.

Additional Example 2B: Using Equations to Solve Problems with Percents
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Additional Example 2B: Using Equations to Solve Problems with Percents Solve. What percent of 9 is 18? 18 = n · 9 Write an equation. 18 9 n · 9 9 Divide each side by 9 to isolate the variable. = 2 = n Write the decimal as a percent. 200% = n 18 is 200% of 9.

6-5 Solving Percents Problems Check It Out: Example 2A Solve.
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Check It Out: Example 2A Solve. 36 is 24% of what number? 36 = 24% · n Write an equation. 36 = 0.24 · n Write 24% as a decimal. 36 0.24 = 0.24 · n Divide each side by 0.24 to isolate the variable. 150 = n 36 is 24% of 150.

6-5 Solving Percents Problems Check It Out: Example 2B Solve.
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Check It Out: Example 2B Solve. What percent of 6 is 36? 36 = n · 6 Write an equation. 36 6 n · 6 6 Divide each side by 6 to isolate the variable. = 6 = n Write the decimal as a percent. 600% = n 36 is 600% of 6.

Additional Example 3: Finding Sales Tax
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Additional Example 3: Finding Sales Tax A portable DVD player costs \$225 before tax at an appliance warehouse. What is the sales tax rate if the tax is \$18? Restate the question: What percent of \$225 is \$18? n 100 18 225 = Write a proportion. n · 225 = 100 · 18 Set the cross products equal. 225n = 1800 Multiply. 225n 225 1800 225 = Divide each side by 225. n = 8 8% of \$225 is \$18. The sales tax is 8%.

6-5 Solving Percents Problems Check It Out: Example 3
Course 2 6-5 Solving Percents Problems Check It Out: Example 3 A new flat screen TV costs \$800 before tax at an appliance warehouse. What is the sales tax rate if the tax is \$56? Restate the question: What percent of \$800 is \$56? n 100 56 800 = Write a proportion. n · 800 = 100 · 56 Set the cross products equal. 800n = 5600 Multiply. 800n 800 5600 800 = Divide each side by 800. n = 7 7% of \$800 is \$56. The sales tax is 7%.
