% Perfect percentages! %

Today in maths we have been exploring percentages, finding a range of different percentages from amounts of money. We found out how to calculate 50%, 10%, 25% etc, but also had the challenge to calculate more difficult percentages like 27%, 88% or 47.5%!

Class 9 – what have you learnt about finding percentages? What tips can you remember?

    You can use little tricks to help find percentages like 50% and 25% can make 75%.

    I really enjoyed this lesson working out percentages of a number. I now feel really confident and I can’t wait to do more! 🙂
    MY TIP:
    My tip is that you should find the easiest percentages first, like 50 and 10 and 1, then you can find the more difficult percentages by adding, subtracting,multiplying or dividing the percentage. 😀 Simple!

    I enjoyed working with Molly to find percentages of 150. We first found the normal ones but then we started to find random ones like 94%!

    I really enjoyed doing this maths activity but it was very challenging i might need a bit more practice and help because i didn’t understand it that much. So I hope we can have a bit more practice on the maths work again (:

    I got something like 361.655114% of 328

    The first steps I would do would be:
    50% (100%/2)
    10% (100&/10)
    25% (50%/2)
    1% (10%/10)
    5% (1%x5 or 50%/10 or 10%/2)
