Solving Equations Containing Percents

Percent Proportion Method Part = % Whole 100 Example: What is 25% of 20? x = 25 You are trying to 20 100 find a “part” of 20

Proportion Method Example: What is 18% of 56? Part = % Whole 100% x = 18% You are trying to 56 100% find a “part” of 56

Proportion Method Example: 45 is what percent of 90? Part = % Whole 100% 45 = x% You are trying to 90 100% find a percent

Proportion Method 12 is 8% of what number? Part = % Whole 100% 12 = 8% You are trying to x 100% find the “whole” number

Proportion Method What is 10% of 40?

Proportion Method What is 30% of 62?

Proportion Method 48 is 20% of what number?

Equation Method What is 30% of 80? n = 30% 80 n = 0.30 80 REMEMBER to change into a decimal! n = 24

Equation Method 105 is what percent of 75? 105 = n 75 105 = 75n 75 75 1.4 = 140% = n REMEMBER to change into a percent!

Equation Method 6 is 10% of what number? 6 = 10% n 6 = 0.10 n REMEMBER to change 6 = 0.10n 0.10 0.10 60 = n

Equation Method What percent of 80 is 10? n 80 = 10 80n = 10 80 80 n = 0.125 = 12.5% REMEMBER to change into a percent!

Equation Method When do you have to change a decimal into a percent??? ◦ When you are finding a percent When do you need to change a percent into a decimal? ◦ EVERYTIME you have a percent in an equation you MUST change it into a decimal!
