Don't forget, per cent means per hundred, e.g. 10% = 10⁄100. Suppose you were asked to find 10% of 50, how would you do it? This is how you would do it: 10⁄100 × 50 = (10 × 50) ÷ 100 = 5. It's as simple as that!
There are various ways to write numbers such as decimals, fractions or percentages. If I picked a bunch of flowers from the garden with 9 purple flowers and 3 yellow, what percentage of yellow flowers do I have? 3 out of 12 is one-quarter which can be written as either 0.25, 1⁄4 or 25%.
