**1. Percent -**means out of 100 and it can be shown as

**decimals**and

**fractions.**

For example 80% can be 0.8 and 8/10.

**Representing Percents;**

**You can represent a percent by using a**

**grid.**

For example 20% can be shown like this.

**Percents**can also be shown as decimals and percents. For example 50% can be 0.5 or 1/2.

**Percent of a Number**

You can use mental math strategies like halving, doubling, and dividing by 10 to find a percent of a number. You can also write the percent as a decimal then multiply it by the number.

For example,

12 1/2 % of 50 = 0.125 x 50 12 1/2% = 12.5%

= 6.25 = 0.125

Combining Percent

You can combine

**Percents to solve a problem.****For example if your buying a bike for $100 and the tax is 5% PST and 7% GST = 12%.**

**You can find the answer buy finding 1% of $100 then multiply by 12 to find how much the tax would be with the original price. So 100 divided by 100 = 1 then multiply by 12 and you will find the tax which is $12. All together you are paying $112 for the bike.**
