GMAT FLASH CARDS

Percent Change= (Change in Value)/Original Value

New Percent = New Value / Original Value; New Percent = (1+ (percent change/100)) * Original Value

Conversions:
1. Decimal to Percent - Move decimal two places to the RIGHT
0.0007 = 0.07%
2. Percent to Decimal - Move decimal two places to the LEFT
125% = 1.25

Working with Percent:
The Part is some percent of the whole
PART/WHOLE = PERCENT/100

Thanks rbr, would you also have flash cards in the style of:

1/2 = 0.5 = 50%
1/3 = 0.333 = 33.3%
1/4 = 0.25 = 25%
1/5 = 0.2 = 20%
1/6 = 0.167 = 16.7%
1/7 = 0.143 = 14.3%
1/8 = 0.125 = 12.5%
1/9 = 0.111 = 11.1%
1/10 = 0.1 = 10%
----------------------
1/11 = 0.909 = 9.1%
1/12 = 0.833 = 8.33%

I strongly recommend being at ease converting between these three formats for at least 1/2 to 1/10 (in particular 1/6 to 1/9 are not always obvious). If you want to go to 1/12 that's even better but largely unnecessary on most exams.

Hope this helps!
-Ron

Thank you Ron for the info! I was about to update the same. Just thought to bring up some post for the beginners to start with so easy instead of wasting their time looking for the info.
