Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, calculate percentages of numbers without using a calculator.

 

Example

Find 40% of 240.

 

Answer

First we find 10% of 240 by dividing 240 by 10.

240 ÷ 10 = 24.

Next we multiply this by 4 to get 40% of 240.

24 x 4 = 96.

 

So to summarise,

100% of 240 = 240

10% of 240 =   24

40% of 240 =   96
