3
Find 5% of 20 Identify the three parts. 1.The percentage – 5% 2.The base – of 20 3.The amount – what we are trying to find – x

4
The Percent Proportion This proportion always works with simple percent problems.

Find 5% of 20 1.The percentage – 5% 2.The base – of 20 3.The amount – what we are trying to find – x

6
Find 5% of 20 Cross-multiply: 100 x = 100 Divide: x = 1 5% of 20 is 1

7
What percent of 40 is 15? 1.The percentage – what we are trying to find – x 2.The base – of 40 3.The amount – 15

8
What percent of 40 is 15? Cross-multiply: 40 x = 1500 Divide: x = 37.5 15 is 37.5% of 40

9
20 is 40% of what number? 1.The percentage – 40% 2.The base – what we are trying to find - of what - x 3.The amount – 20
