Worksheet Overview

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
