LI: I can find a percentage of an amount


We are going to be finding percentage of an amount today.


You have already found a fraction of an amount before. If you want to, you could always convert a percentage to a fraction and then find the fraction of the amount. E.g. finding 25% of 60 = the same as a quarter of 60 = 60 divided by 4, then multiplied by 1 (remember the dance) = 15. So 25% of 60 is 15.


The video explains this in a clearer way with visuals.
