Problem of the Day

In a group of 60 triangular and square tiles, 25% are red, and 75% are blue. The ratio of triangles to squares is 1:2. Seventy percent of the squares are blue. Find the number of each kind of tile (red or blue squares or triangles).

Course 2

The human body is made up mostly of water. In fact, about 67% of a person’s total (100%) body weight is water. If Cameron weighs 90 pounds, about how much of his weight is water?

Recall that a percent is a part of 100. Since you want to know the part of Cameron’s body that is water, you can set up and solve a proportion to find the answer.

Additional Example 1A: Using Proportions to Find Percents of Numbers

Find the percent of each number.

A. 30% of 50

Write a proportion.

30 · 50 = 100 · n

Set the cross products equal.

1,500 = 100n

Multiply.

1,500

Divide each side by 100 to isolate

the variable.

15 = n

30% of 50 is 15.

Percent of a Number

When solving a problem with a percent greater than 100%, the part will be greater than the whole.

150% of 64 is 96.

Percent of a Number

When you are solving problems with percents, of usually means “times.”

Course 2

In addition to using proportions, you can find the percent of a number by using decimal equivalents.

Percent of a Number

Course 2

Additional Example 2A: Using Decimal Equivalents to Find Percents of Numbers

Find the percent of the number. Estimate to check whether your answer is reasonable.

A. 9% of 80

Write the percent as a decimal and multiply.

9% of 80 = 0.09 · 80

= 7.2

Estimate

10% · 80 = 8, so 9% of 80 is less than 8. Thus 7.2 is a reasonable answer.

Additional Example 2B: Using Decimal Equivalents to Find Percents of Numbers

Find the percent of the number. Estimate

B. 3% of 12

3% of 12 = 0.03 · 12

Write the percent as a decimal and multiply.

= 0.36

Estimate

5% · 12 = 0.6, so 3% of 12 is a little less than 0.6. Thus 0.36 is a reasonable answer.

Try This: Example 2A

Find the percent of the number. Estimate to check whether your answer is reasonable.

A. 21% of 50

21% of 50 = 0.21 · 50

Write the percent as a decimal and multiply.

= 10.5

Estimate

20% · 50 = 10, so 21% of 50 is a little more than 10. Thus 10.5 is a reasonable answer.

Course 2

Try This: Example 2B

Find the percent of the number. Estimate

B. 6% of 18

6% of 18 = 0.06 · 18

Write the percent as a decimal and multiply.

= 1.08

Estimate

5% · 20 = 1, so 6% of 18 is close to 1. Thus 1.08 is a reasonable answer.
