Using Percentages -
Sometimes we will need to find out the amount
that a given percentage of a total will give us. For example
27% of 48 =
Because % or percent means 'per 100' we can rewrite a percentage as a fraction:
So.... 27/100 of 48 =
Now we can just divide by the denominator and times by the numerator....
48 divided by 100, then multiply by 27 to give us the answer.
Therefore 27% of 48= 12.96. Other times we may need to calculate the percentage!
In the field we found 48 bugs. 13 of them were woodlice. What percentage of the bugs were woodlice?
13 out of 48 were woodlice.
Therefore we need to write the fraction 13/48 as a percentage.
To do this we divide the numerator(13) by the denominator(48) and multiply by 100.
So... 13 divided by 48, times by 100 or
13/48 x 100 = 27% Use a calculator!!!!
