Worksheet Overview

This activity 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.

You should also know that 50% is a half, 25% is a quarter and 75% is three-quarters.

Example 1

Find 75% of 340

75% is ¾

Work out ¼ of 340 = 340 ÷ 4 = 85

Multiply by 3 to find ¾ of 340 = 85 × 3 = 255

Example 2

Find 25% of 360

Work out ¼ of 360 = 360 ÷ 4 = 90

It look simple, doesn't it?

Let's try some questions.
