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.
