3. Use mental math to determine each of the following.

a) 300 % of 2000

100% of 2000 = 2000

300% of 2000 = 6000

To get 300%, you have to multiply the number by 3

b) 1 1/4 % of 60

1% of 60 = 0.6

0.25% of 60 = 0.15

0.6 + 0.15 = 0.75

I know that 1% of 60 is 0.6. So I divided that by 4 (to get 0.25%), and I got 0.15. I added them together and got 0.75

c) 0.1 % of 40

1% of 40 = 0.4

1% ÷ 10 = 0.1%

0.4 ÷ 10 = 0.04

First, I found 1% of 40. Then to get 0.1%, I divided 1% by 10. So that means I have to divide 0.4 by 10 to get 0.1% of 40

4. Use mental math to find the following.

a) 20 % of 60

100% of 60 = 60

100 ÷ 5 = 20

60 ÷ 5 = 12

To get 20% of a number, divide it by 5

b) 250 % of 400

100% of 400 = 400

100 × 2.5 = 250

400 × 2.5 = 1000

To get 250% multiply the number by 2.5

c) 10 1/2 % of 100

100

100% 100

10% 10

1% 1

0.5 0.5

10% + 0.5% = 10.5%

10 + 0.5 = 10.5

If you're trying to find a percent of a hundred, don't work so hard. The answer is the percent they're asking you to find.

Example: 45% of 100 = 45

32.256 % of 100 = 32.256

Hope this helps!!!!! Please comment if you have a question......even though I'm not gonna answer it
