Hi this
is my percent post!!
1.
- 50% - To find 50% of a number, you divide the number by 2.
- 10% - To find 10% of a number, you divide the number by 10.
- 1% - To find 1% of a number you divide the number by 100.
- 25% - To find 25% of a number you divide the number by 4.
- A percent is a number out of 100 or a whole.
2.
- 180%
- 12 3/4%
- 0.7%
3.
- 26%
Percent to Decimal: 26% ÷ 100 = 0.26
To convert a percent to a fraction you will have to first convert it to a decimal number (0.26), then you cross out the zero(s) (26) to get the numerator. In order to get the denominator of the fraction, you look at the place value of the last digit in the decimal number (hundredths).
Percent to Fraction: 26/100
- 7/10
To convert a fraction to a decimal, you have to divide the numerator by the denominator
Fraction to Decimal: 7 ÷ 10 = 0.7
To convert a fraction to a percent you will have to first convert the fraction into a decimal number. Then you multiply the decimal by 100 to get the percentage.
Fraction to Percent: 0.7 x 100 = 70%
- 0.024
To convert a decimal number into a percent, you multiply the decimal by 100.
Decimal Percent: 0.024 x 100 = 2.4%
Decimal Percent: 0.024 x 100 = 2.4%
To convert a decimal number to a fraction, you cross out the zero(s) (24) to get the numerator, to get the denominator you look at the place value of the last digit of the decimal number (thousandths).
Decimal to Fraction:
24/ 1000

- 20% of 60 = 12
Mental Math: 10% of 60 =
6 ( 10% x 60
= 600
10% of 60 =
6
600 ÷ 100 = 6)
6 + 6 = 12
Calculator: 20% ÷ 100 = 0.2
0.2 x 60 = 12
- 0.1% of 40 = 0.04
Mental
Math: 40 ÷ 10 = 4
4 ÷ 100 = 0.04
4 ÷ 100 = 0.04
Calculator: 0.1% ÷ 100 = 0.001
0.001 x 40 = 0.04
- 250% of 400 = 1,000
Mental
Math: 100% of 400 = 400
100% of 400 = 400
50% of 400= 200
100% of 400 = 400
50% of 400= 200
400+ 400 + 200 = 1000
Calculator: 250% ÷ 100 = 2.5
2.5 x 400 = 1,000

Question 7 on page 149: A herd of 100 caribou was moved to a new location. The population increased by 10% the first year and then increased by 20% the second year.
A) Find the population after the second year.
10% ÷ 100 = 0.1
0.1 x 100 = 10
100 + 10 = 110
20% ÷ 100 = 0.2
0.2 x 110 = 22
110 + 22 = 132
B) Explain why there was not a 30% increase in population over the two years.
There was not a 30% increase in population over the two years because the population wouldn't be accurate, it would be less than the actual population over the two years with the 10% increase in the first year and the 20% increase in the second year.
30% ÷ 100 = 0.3
0.3 x 100 = 30
100 + 30 = 130
