### Percents and Proportional Reasoning

Percents, Fractions, and Decimals

Finding a Percent of a Number

Lessons 6.6 & 6.7

CCS: 6.RP.3.

• Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.

• Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems

• Students will be able to:

• Represent percents in different but related ways, such as a ratio, a fraction and a decimal

• Use proportions to solve percentage problems

• Use decimals to calculate daily transactions (finding sales tax or figuring tips on restaurant bills)

• A percent is a ratio that compares a number to 100. It means “per 100.”

• 49 out of 100 is 49%.

• Imagine a decimal point in the place of the percent sign, and move the decimal two spaces to the left (the same as dividing by 100).

• Place the percent in a fraction with a denominator of 100.

• Simplify the fraction.

• Move the decimal point two spaces to the right, and add a % symbol (this is the same as multiplying by 100).

• Divide the numerator by the denominator to get a decimal.

• Change the decimal to a percent by moving the decimal point to the right (multiply by 100).

• Writing Percents as Fractions and Decimals

### Finding a Percent of a Number

Should we use decimals OR proportions (fractions) OR both???

• Set up a proportion that uses the percent over 100.

• Cross multiply to write an equation.

• Solve the equation.

To set up your proportion, think, “IS over OF equals PERCENT over 100.”

Example – What is 20% of 30?

• Change the percent to a decimal.

• Multiply that decimal by the number you are finding the percent of.

Example – What is 18% of 70?

18% = 0.18

0.18 x 70 = 12.6
