Welcome to the second of our difficult Eleven Plus maths quizzes on percentages. In the first, you were asked to express one number as a percentage (or proportion) of another – I hope you didn’t find it too hard! In this quiz, we’ll offer you more chance to practice.
There is a simple way to do it. Here’s an example:
What percentage of 20 is 4?
First, arrange the problem like this :
(4 ÷ 20) × 100%
Next, you can make it easier by turning it around, like this:
(4 × 100) ÷ 20
Work out the part in brackets:
400 ÷ 20
This gives you the answer = 20%
Just follow this formula and percentages should be simple. So, now you are ready, let’s begin. Good luck!
This tells you the proportion of away fans. To find the proportion of home fans, simply subtract 8 from 100:
100 – 8 = 92%
