Pre-Algebra

- Warm Up
- Rewrite each value as indicated.
- 1. as a percent
- 2. 25% as a fraction
- 3. as a decimal
- 4. 0.16 as a fraction

48%

0.375

A number between 1 and 10 is halved, and the result is squared. This gives an answer that is double the original number. What is the starting number?

Today’s Learning Goal Assignment

Learn to find percents.

Relative humidity is a measure of the amount of water vapor in the air. When the relative humidity is 100%, the air has the maximum amount of water vapor. At this point, any additional water vapor would cause precipitation. To find the relative humidity on a given day, you would need to find a percent.

p =

Solve for p.

220

Additional Example 1A: Finding the Percent One Number Is of Another

A. What percent of 220 is 88?

Method 1: Set up an equation to find the percent.

p 220 = 88 Set up an equation.

p= 0.4 0.4 is 40%.

So 88 is 40% of 220.

Additional Example 1B: Finding the Percent One Number Is of Another

B. Eddie weighs 160 lb, and his bones weigh 24 lb. Find the percent of his weight that his bones are.

Think:What number is to 100 as 24 is to 160?

Set up a proportion.

Substitute.

n 160 = 100 24

Find the cross products.

160n = 2400

n =

Additional Example 1 Continued

Solve for n.

n = 15

The proportion is reasonable.

So 15% of Eddie’s weight is bone.

p =

Solve for p.

110

Try This: Example 1A

A. What percent of 110 is 11?

Method 1: Set up an equation to find the percent.

p110 = 11 Set up an equation.

p= 0.1 0.1 is 10%.

So 11 is 10% of 110.

Think:What number is to 100 as 21 is to 140?

Set up a proportion.

Substitute.

n 140 = 100 21

Find the cross products.

140n = 2100

n =

Solve for n.

n = 15

The proportion is reasonable.

So 15% of Jamie’s weight is bone.

A. After a drought, a reservoir had only 66 % of the average amount of water. If the average amount of water is 57,000,000 gallons, how much water was in the reservoir after the drought?

Additional Example 2B: Finding Percents

B. Ms. Chang deposited $550 in the bank. Four years later her account held 110% of the original amount. How much money did Ms. Chang have in the bank at the end of the four years?

Choose a method: Set up a proportion.

110 550 = 100 a Find the cross products.

60,500 = 100a

Additional Example 2B Continued

605 = a Solve for a.

Ms. Chang had $605 in the bank at the end of the four years.

A. After a drought, a river had only 50 % of the average amount of water flow. If the average amount of water flow is 60,000,000 gallons per day, how much water was flowing in the river after the drought?

Mr. Downing had $924 in the bank at the end of the four years.

Find each percent to the nearest tenth.

1. What percent of 33 is 22?

2. What percent of 300 is 120?

3. 18 is what percent of 25?
