Finding the percent by finding how much one values
- 16% of 52.80
- .4% of 101.60
For the first question we did in class which was 16% of 52.80.
Explanation:In this picture above it shows how much one block is, because once you find how much one individual square you can find anything else with perfect ease. You find how much one square is out of the whole by dividing the whole by 100 so you can convert it to a decimal. Once you get to the decimal. You multiply the decimal by the percent you are trying to find.
- First we find how much one square is
- So we divided 52.80 by 100= .528 ( which is how much one square is )
-Multiplied one square by the percent you are trying to find. .528 x 16 = 8.448
So that's you answer!
Question number 2 we did in class was finding .4% of 101.60.
Explanation: For this question we actually just do the exact thing but just with different numbers. The confusing part about doing this kind of question is whether to divide or multiply if you are trying to find a percent with a decimal. Well there is actually no difference you multiply no matter what kind of percent you are dealing with.
These are the questions we had for homework... But use my answers as a guide to see if your answer is the same not to just copy.
- 350% of 10
- .1% of $5000
- 160% of $5327
- 3/4% of 500
1) 350% of 10
Explanation: We use the same process that we used so far and what I have told you for all questions below.
- 10 ÷ 100 = .1
- .1 x 350 = 35
2) .1% of $5000
- 5000 ÷ 100 = 50
- .1 x 50 = 5
3) 160% of $5327
- 5327 ÷ 100 = 53.27
- 160 x 53.27 = 8523.2
4) 3/4% of 135
For this one because it was a fraction it must be a decimal number. So 3/4 is .75 because 3 divided by 4 is .75. Or one fourth is .25 then multiply it by 3.
- 135 ÷ 100 = 1.35
- .75 x 1.35 = 1.0125
5) 55.8% of 500
- 500 ÷ 100 = 5
- 55.8 x 5 = 279
