Intro to Percents
A Portion of a Hundred
A simple conceptual understanding of a percent can help you make logical guesses on multiple choice questions, evaluate your answers, and do simple percent problems in your head.
STEP 1: WATCH THE VIRTUAL CLASS VIDEO AND TAKE NOTES
Make sure to note the following:
Put quite simply, a percentage is a portion out of 100 parts. For example 75% means 75 pieces out of every one hundred. There are a lot of ways to tackle percent problems, but in this lesson we will just dig down deep into using our reasoning skills to solve straightforward percent problems.
