Now we know how to find 10% (by dividing the whole by 10) we can now work out other percentages like 30% (divide by 10 then multiply by 3) or 70% (divide by 10 then multiply by 7).

We can even find 5% by dividing by 10 then dividing by 2.

Can you find these percentages?

1)         5% of 180 = _________

10% of 180 = _________ ÷ 2 = ___________

2)         5% of 240 = _________

10% of 240= _________ ÷ 2 = ___________

3)         30% of 200 = _________

10% of 200 = __________ X 3 = __________

4)         70 % of 130 = ________

10% of 130 = _________ X 7 = ____________

5)         40% of 600 = __________

10% of 600 = __________ X 4 = ___________
