Benchmark Percents - Find The Whole (Word Problems) Worksheet

8 problems

We know, 100% is the same thing as 1/1 or 1. Similarly 50% is the same thing as ½ or 10% is the same thing as 1/10. Now let us look to see how we can calculate these benchmark percentages. If we have 100%, that is simply a whole number. So 100% of 69 will be 69 itself. Similarly, if we have 50%, that means half the number. So 50% of 70 will be 35.

Teaching to Benchmark Percents- Find the Whole (Word Problems) Easily


Let us understand how to benchmark percents- find the whole with the help of an example.


What is 10% of 67?

Solution: We put 67 over 10. So we have 67/10.

Now, 67/10 is the same thing as 6 and 7 tenths. Thus, 10% of 67 is 6.7.
