1. Introduction to Percents

2. Identify Terms Used With Percents • Percent • Like a fraction or a decimal, represents part of a whole. • Means hundredths or parts in 100 • Symbol is % • 25% = 25/100 = 0.25 (25 parts of 100 parts) • 33% = 33/100 = 0.33 (33 parts of 100 parts)

3. Write A Percent As A Decimal • Drop percent symbol and divide by 100 • 35% = 35/100 = 0.35 • Drop percent symbol and move decimal point 2 places to the left • 35% = 35.0 = 0.35

4. Let’s Try It • Convert the following percentages to decimals

5. Writing Mixed Number Percentages as Decimals • To write a mixed number percent as a decimal • Change the fractional part of the mixed number to a decimal percent. 8 ¼% = 8.25% • Convert decimal percent to its decimal equivalent • Move decimal point 2 places to the left 8.25% = 0.0825

6. Let’s Try It • Convert the following fractional percentages to decimals • Round numbers to the nearest hundredth

7. Common Fractions as Percents • 1/5 • Convert the fraction to its decimal equivalent 1/5 = 0.20 1 ÷ 5 = .20 • Convert the decimal to percent • Move decimal point 2 places to the right and add percent symbol 0.20 = 20%

8. Examples • To convert fractions to decimals • divide the numerator by the denominator

12. Part, Rate and Base

13. Percents are commonly used to determine interest, sales, taxes, commissions, and discounts or to make comparisons

14. Key Terms • Base • Represents 100% • That to which something is being compared • Rate • Number followed by percent symbol • The percent one number is of another one • May be written as decimal of fraction • Part • The number that is a portion of the base

15. As an Equation • Part = Base x Rate • As a proportion IS % = OF 100

16. For Example • What is a 30% discount on a \$150 jacket? • Equation: • Part = Base x Rate • ? = \$150 x 30% Convert to decimal and multiply \$150 x .30 = \$45

17. For Example • What is a 30% discount on a \$150 jacket? • Proportion Cross Multiply Divide both sides by 100 100X = (30)(150) 100X = 4500 100X = 4500 100 100 X IS % 30 = = 150 OF 100 100 X = \$45

18. Parts with decimals • What is 6.5% of 130? • Equation • Part = Base x Rate • X = 130 x .065 • X = 8.45

19. Parts With Decimals • What is a 6.5% of 130? • Proportion Cross Multiply Divide both sides by 100 100X = (6.5)(130) 100X = 845 100X = 845 100 100 X IS % 6.5 = = 130 OF 100 100 X = 8.45

20. Parts with Fractions • Suppose you had a gain of 6-1/4% on \$400. What was the gain? • Change fractional percent to a decimal percent 6.25% • Drop percent symbol and move decimal point to the left two spaces .0625 • Apply formula: Part = Base x Rate X = \$400 x .0625 X = \$25 • The gain was \$25

21. Finding Rate • Rate = Part ÷ Base Example: What percent is \$15 of \$139? X = 15 ÷ 139 X = 0.108 = 10.8%

22. For Example • What percent is \$15 of \$139? • Proportion Cross Multiply Divide both sides by 139 1500 = 139X 1500 = 139X 139 139 IS 15 X % = = 139 OF 100 100 X = 10.8
