Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

 Percentages are simply another way of expressing hundredths.

"Percent" means "out of a hundred."

 

So 1% = 1/100 

10% = 10/100 = 1/10 when we reduce the fraction to its lowest terms

20% = 20/100 = 2/10 = 1/5

 

43% = 43/100

 

Remember that 50% and 5% are very different:

50% = 50/100 = 1/2

5% = 5/100 = 1/20
