It is difficult to divide a circle into 100 parts.

So, we can find equivalent fraction of

The 100% part of the circle can be represented as:

(Divide both numerator and denominator by HCF of 50 and 100 = 50)

The 50% part of the circle can be represented as:

(Divide both numerator and denominator by HCF of 25 and 100 = 25)

The 25% part of the circle can be represented as:

Example:

Find the 10% of 80.

**Step 1:**Convert 6% into a fraction.

=

= 2 Ã— 4

= 8

So, 8 is the 10% of 80.

Example 1:

If we find out 10% of 60, we get

Here, 10 **percent** of the 60 is 6; 6 is the **percentage.**
