Part, Whole, Percent Calculations (Using Formula) Worksheet

8 problems

Part, whole, percent calculations involve finding the relationship between a part and its whole, or finding one value when the other two are known. The concepts of part and whole are often used in mathematical and real-world situations to express proportions and ratios.

The percent is a way of expressing a ratio as a fraction of 100. For example, if a part represents 40% of the whole, it means the part is 40/100 or 2/5 of the whole.

In these calculations, we can use the formulas:


 

  • Part = Percent * Whole / 100
  • Whole = Part / Percent * 100
  • Percent = Part / Whole * 100



 

Part-whole-percent calculations are used in many fields such as finance, business, and statistics, to understand the relationship between different parts of a whole and to make decisions based on that understanding.

An example of this would be if a student scored 80 out of 100 on a test, we can calculate the percentage as (80/100)*100 = 80%


 

Another example is if a pizza is cut into 8 slices and you eat 2 slices, we can calculate the part as 2/8 = 25%

Teaching Part, whole, percent calculations (using formula) Easily 

 

  1. Introduce the concepts of part and whole: Begin by using concrete examples to help students understand the concepts of part and whole.
  2.  Explain that percent is a way of expressing a ratio as a fraction of 100. For example, if a student scored 80 out of 100 on a test, the percentage would be (80/100) * 100 = 80%.
  3. Have students practice converting between fractions, decimals, and percents through worksheets. This will help them understand the relationship between these different ways of expressing r...
