Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free percentage worksheet of 43 questions and answers
A percentage is an amount expressed as a fraction with a denominator of 100. For example 35% means ‘35 out of 100’, 35 hundredths or 35 over 100. In decimal form, we write 0.35. A percentage does not always have to be a whole number.
Basic skills include finding percentages of a given number, converting into fraction or decimal number form, or solving percent problems involving percentage increase or decrease. Percentage calculations are often related to real life – for example, finding the sale price of an item by subtracting the percentage reduction from the original cost.
The topic extends further to work on reverse percentages (finding the original amount given the percentage change and the ‘new’ amount), as well as simple and compound interest.
