### Final Percent Post

4.1 Representing Percents

4.2 Fractions, Decimals, and Percents

4.3 Percent of a number

You can find the percent of a number by using mental math strategies.

ex. halving, doubling or dividing by 10

You can also find the percent of a number by converting the percent to a decimal and multiplying it by the number.

ex. 10% of 100

10 divided by 100= 0.1

0.1 x 100 = 10

4.4 Combining Percents

You can combine percents by adding to solve problems.

ex. 5% + 7% = 12%
