These Percent word problems are great for ages 11 and older who are looking to improve their percent skills.
20
20% can also be written as 20/100.
20/100 x 100 = 20
Zane
3/4 x 100 = 75%
75 is greater than 60 meaning Zane ate more than Jebb.
65%
13/20 x 100 = 65
40
20% of 50 can be written as 20% x 50 or 20/100 x 50 which equals 10
Off means to take off or deduct so we need to go 50 - 10 which equals 40
25%
Two dozen is the same as 2 x 12 which equals 24
6/24 * 100 = 25
Sandy
15 out of 20 can be written as 15/20
15/20 * 100 = 75
We know Sandy got 80 which is higher than 75
2
Converting 10% into fractions gives us 10/100
10/100 * 20 = 2
50%
Add up all the animals: 10 + 15 + 25 = 50
Then we know 25 are ducks therefore 25/50 are ducks
25/50*100 = 50%
20
This one is a little tricker.
The easiest is to convert the percentage to a fraction and then cross multiply:
15 * 100/75 = 20
$32
20% of 40 can be written as 20% x 40 or 20/100 x 40 which equals 8
Off means to take off or deduct the 8
40 - 8 = 32
