How to Find the Percentage of a Number
Given a number, finding the value that is some percentage of that value is another common skill. Typically this involves converting a percentage to a fraction over 100, then multiplying that fraction by the other number. These worksheets begin with asking the student to provide the number that is the equivalent percentage of a number like 10 or 100 that is easily converted. The worksheets progress through numbers that are related to base 10 values (for example, mutliples of 20 or 25 that can easily be converted to 100), all the way through arbitrary values.
