Percentages

Public and uniformed services

  • What percentages are used in the uniformed services?


Percentages what are they

Percentages – what are they

  • To think of it as money......

  • 10% is 10p in the pound (100p)

  • 20% is 20p in the pound

  • Percent means out of 100


How to calculate a percent of an amount

How to calculate a percent of an amount

  • Divide the amount by 100 and multiply it by the percent you are looking for.

  • So to find 10% of some thing divide the amount by 100 to find 1% and multiply it by 10.

  • So to find 25% of something divide it by 100 and multiply it by 25


Some for you to try

Some for you to try

  • 10% of £50

  • 25% of 100km

  • 40% of $90

  • 65% of 150


Making a percentage

Making a percentage

  • A switchboard takes 10 calls for an ambulance and 30 for the fire brigade, what percentage of calls are for ambulances?

  • How do we do it?

  • How many things (in this case phone calls) altogether?

  • 10 + 30 = 40, then divide the number of the thing we are after by the total number and multiply by 100

  • So.....10 ÷ 40 × 100 = 25%


Some for you to try1

Some for you to try

  • 60 ambulances do not make it to the patient within 7 minutes, 240 do, what percentage make it on time?

  • 10 police cars, 20 riot vans and 20 mounted police are at a football match, what percentage are cars?

  • 80 officers are combat trained and 40 are not, what percentage are combat trained?


Fractions decimals and percentages

Fractions decimals and percentages

  • ¼ is 1 ÷ 4 = 0.25

  • Didn’t we just say, to find a percent, it’s the bit we have/need, divided by the total and multiply by 100?

  • So ¼ is 1 ÷ 4 = 0.25 then 0.25 × 100 = 25%

  • So ½ is 1 ÷ 2 = 0.5 then 0.5 × 100 = 50%


Class practice wordier

Class practice - wordier

  • Tammy is going on holiday and has to pay a 20% deposit, her holiday costs £1500, how much would she need to pay?

  • £1500 ÷ 100 = £15

  • £15 × 20 = £300

  • Tammy would need to pay a £300 deposit
