Percentage

Mathematical Reasoning
Maths - Percentage Problems

In percentage, a fraction is expressed in terms of hundred. Thus, per cent is a fraction whose denominator is 100.

The sign of 100 is %

Two Important Conventions:
To convert a fraction or decimal into percent multiply it by 100. ∴ 20% = 20/100
To convert per cent into a fraction or a decimal, divide by 100 and delete the % sign.
1/5 = (1/5) ✕ 100 = 20%


Question 1: Express 5/2 as rate percent.

Answer: (5/2) ✕ 100 = (5 ✕ 100)/ 2 = 500/2 = 250%


Question 2: Find 25% of 1000
