Please Help me.Can I get some basic information about %? I'm not getting this % concepts?
Hi,
Percent, as the name suggests, is PER CENT ==> /100
e.g 10 percent of 30 ==> (10/100)*30 = 3
hence you can always rplace PERCENT word with /100.
Letz try this.
20 percent of the price of a computer is $6000. What is the actual price of the computer
(20/100) * (the actual price) = 6000
==> The actual price = 6000*100 / 20 = 30000
Now, as you can infer from above, x % of 100 is always x
now, it is very useful to grasp the below stated concepts.
x % of a +ve # that is < 100 is always < x
x % of a +ve # that is > 100 is always > x
10 % of 100 is 10
10 % of 80 is 8 i.e. < 10
10 % of 450 is 45 i.e. > 10
Also remember,
25 percent of x ==> 25/100 of x ==> 1/4 rth of x ==> quarter of x
50 percent of x ==> 50/100 of x ==> 1/2 of x ==> half of x
75 percent of x ==> 75/100 of x ==> 3/4 rth of x ==> 3 quarter of x
100 percent of x ==> 100/100 of x ==> x ==> total x
letz try this.
you have $250 and you get 20 percent intrest on your amount. What is the intrest amount.
letz solve it Using percent meaning:
20% ==> 20 per cent ==> 20 per 100 ==> it means you get $20 for every $100 you have
==> 250 = 100+100+50
==> youget 20+20+10 = 50
formula:
(20/100)*250 = 50
Al the above concepts are very very very basic things in the percent world.
Follow the link, posted by Bunuel, to get more into it.
Remember: THE MORE YOU KNOW ABT PERCENTAGES, THE MORE INTERESTING THEY ARE.
