Solve simple percent problems

Some percent’s are easy to figure. Here are a few.

  • Finding 100% of a number: Remember that 100% means the whole thing, so 100% of any number is simply the number itself:

100% of 5 is 5

100% of 91 is 91

100% of 732 is 732

  • Finding 50% of a number: Remember that 50% means half, so to find 50% of a number, just divide it by 2:

50% of 20 is 10

50% of 88 is 44

  • Finding 25% of a number: Remember that 25% equals 1/4, so to find 25% of a number, divide it by 4:

25% of 40 is 10

25% of 88 is 22
