Worksheet Overview

To find 10% of a number we must find 1/10 of it.


One way to do this is to divide the number by 10.


To find 20% of a number we first find 10% and then double the result.



Find 20% of 530



First we find 10% which is 530 ÷ 10 = 53

Then we double the result to get 53 x 2 = 106
