A percent can always be written as a decimal, and a decimal can be written as a percent, by moving the decimal point two places to the right like this:

Finding the Percent of a Number:
Example: Find 50% of 20.
Multiply the number by the percent (e.g. 20 x 50 = 1000)
Divide the answer by 100 (Move decimal point two places to the left) (e.g. 1000/100 = 10). If the answer is in a decimal point, round it to the desired precision (e.g. 59.16 may be rounded to the nearest whole number = 59)


Directions: Find the percentage of the shaded area. Use % symbol in your answer -- 20%, 50%, etc. Also write at least 10 examples of your own.
