Easy or Simple Percentages

100%: 100% = 100/100 = 1. To find 100% of a number, you don’t need to perform any calculations. It is the same as the number itself. For example, 100% of 50 is 50.

50%: 50% = 50/100 = 1/2 To find 50% of a number, you can divide it by 2. For example, 50% of 120 is 60 (120 ÷ 2 = 60).

25%: 25% = 25/100 = 1/4. To find 25% of a number, you can divide it by 4. For example, 25% of 80 is 20 (80 ÷ 4 = 20).

10%: 10% = 10/100 = 1/10. To find 10% of a number, you can divide by 10 by moving the decimal point one place to the left. For example, 10% of 46 is 4.6

5%: 5% is half of 10%. To find 5% of a number, divide 10% of the number by 2. For example, 5% of 46 is 4.6 ÷ 2 = 2.3

1%: 1% = 1/100. To find 10% of a number, you can divide by 100 by moving the decimal point two places to the left. For example, 1% of 67 is 0.67

Multiples of 10%: For example to find 30% of a 42, multiply 10% of the number by 3: 4.2 &times 3 = 12.6

Swap: If the number is an easy percent, you can swap the number and the percent and the answer will still be the same. For example, 63% of 20 = 20% of 63 = 6.3 &times 2 = 12.6
