Worksheet Overview

This worksheet is about finding a percentage of a number.

It is easy to find 10% of a number. You just divide the number by 10, because 10% is one tenth.

 

When you know 10%, you can find other simple percentages.

5%   (÷ 2)

20% (× 2)

40% (× 4)

and so on.

 


Example 1

Find 5% of 340.

 

Answer

10% is 34.

5% is 34 ÷ 2 = 17.

 

 

Example 2

Find 15% of 340.

 

Answer

10% is 34.

5% is 34 ÷ 2 = 17.

Add these to get 15% which will be 34 + 17 = 51.
