Examples, solutions, videos, and worksheets to help grade 7 students learn how to solve real-world percent problems involving tax, gratuities, commissions, and fees.

There are many real-world problems that involve percents. For example, gratuity (tip), commission, fees, and taxes are applications found daily in the real world. They each increase the total, so all questions like these reflect a percent increase. Likewise, markdowns and discounts decrease the total, so they reflect a percent decrease.

The percent relationship can be represented as
