Percentages

Problems involving percentages are solved in a similar way to those involving fractions. The key is to divide the whole into equal parts.

A computer game is reduced in a sale by 30%. Its reduced price is £77. How much was the original price?

 

Dividing the bar into ten equal pieces allows us to represent 30% and keep the other pieces the same size.

£77 ÷ 7 = £11

The original cost (the whole bar) is £11 × 10 = £110
