A percentage is a form of a fraction; we represent it in fraction form. Here students will learn how to find percentages.
In this learning concept, the students will also learn to

Percentage Introduction:
In our surroundings, we see (%) this symbol many times.
%- Symbol represents a percentage.
We read 34% as ‘34 percent’. This means the symbol % is read as percent.
Example: Colour 25% part of the square.
We can show 25% coloured part of the square as below:
There are total 100 boxes out of which 25 boxes are coloured.
Example:
20 percent written as → 20%(In the form of Percent)
Divide the percent by 100.
Example:
Write 44% in the form of fraction.
Solution:
44% = 44/100
Convert percent to fraction and then decimal
Example:
Write 74% in the form of decimal.
Solution:
74% = 74/100 = 0.74
Multiply fraction/decimal by 100
Example:
Write 72/100 in the form of percent.
72/120 x 100
= 72/6 x 5 …(Divide 120 and 100 by 20.)
= 12/1x 5 ...(Divide 72 and 6 by 6.)
= 60%
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.
Step 2: Multiply the fraction by 80.
= 10/5 x 4
= 2 × 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.
Example 2:
If Sanju got 170 marks out of 200, he gets
Here, 85 is the percentage that Sanju has got.
