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**.
