### What are Percents?:

What are Percents? A part of the whole Example: What percent of Pizza is left? Whole = 8 slices Part left = 4 Ratio: Part = 4 = 1 = 0.5 = 50% Whole 8 2

### Use Proportions:

Use Proportions Set your part over whole ratio equal to “ p ” over 100. Part = p Whole 100 Pizza Example: 4 = p 8 100

### Solving Proportions:

Solving Proportions 4 = p 8 100 Cross multiply: 4 x 100 = 8 xp 400 = 8p Solve for p 4 00 = p 8 P = 50%

### Example::

Example: What percent of 162 is 90? Part = 90 Whole = 162 90 = p 162 100 Cross Multiply 90 x 100 = 162 xp 900 = 162p Solve for p 900 = p 162 P= 56%

Your Turn 24 is what percent of 60?

Your Turn Cont. Part= 24 Whole = 60 24 = p 60 100 2400 = 60p p = 40%
