### How to calculate the percent in a Percentage Problem?

There are 3 sets of calculate the percent worksheets:

• Easy or Simple Percents (50%, 25%, 20%, 10%, 5%, 1%)
• Whole Number Percents
• Decimal Number Percents

The percent is also called the rate.

To find the percent of a number, you need to determine the proportion of that number relative to a whole and express it as a fraction or decimal out of 100. Here are three common methods to calculate percents:

Method 1: Using Decimal Calculation

1. Identify the whole or total amount. Let’s say you have a total of 250 apples.
2. Determine the part. For example, 50 green apples.
3. Divide the part by the whole amount. For instance, if you want to find 50 apples out of 250 apples then divide 50 by 250.
4. Multiply the result by 100% to convert it into a percent. In our example,
(50/250) × 100% = 0.2 × 100% = 20%.
Therefore, 50 out of 250 is 20%.

Method 2: Using Proportions

1. Identify the whole or total amount. Let’s say you have a total of 250 apples.
2. Determine the part. For example, 50 green apples.
3. Set up a proportion to calculate the percentage. The proportion should be part/whole = x/100.
Using our example, it becomes 50/250 = x/100.
4. Multiply both sides by 100 to get 5000/250 = x. 5000/250 = 20. Therefore, 50 out of 250 is 20%.

Method 3: Using Equivalent Fractions

1. Identify the whole or total amount. Let’s say you have a total of 250 apples.
2. Determine the part. For example, 50 green apples.
3. Set up a fraction with the part as the numerator and whole as the denominator. For example, 50/250
4. Simplify the fraction. 50/250 = 1/5
5. If the fraction has a denominator which is a factor of 100 (2,4,5,10,20,25,50) then you may want to use the equivalent fraction method.
6. Find an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100. For example 1/5 = 20/100.
7. The numerator of the equivalent fraction represents the percent value. Therefore, 50 out of 250 is 20%.

Easy or Simple Fractions
1/2 = 50%
1/4 = 25%
1/5 = 20%
1/10 = 10%
1/20 = 5%
1/25 = 4%
1/50 = 2%
1/100 = 1%

### Percentage Word Problems

1. Sarah scored 80 out of 100 on her math test. What percent did she score?

2. If the sales tax on a purchase is \$8 and the total amount paid, including tax, is \$120, what is the tax rate as a percentage?

3. A stock’s price increased from \$50 to \$60. What percent did the stock price increase?

Price increase = New price - Original price = \$60 - \$50 = \$10 Percent increase = (Price increase / Original price) * 100 = (\$10 / \$50) * 100 = 20% Therefore, the stock price increased by 20%.
