A percent is the same as a fraction, but out of 100 .

Write it exactly as you say it:

Find \(\displaystyle{5}\%\) of \(\displaystyle{200}\)

\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{5}}}{{{100}}}}\times{200}\)

\(\displaystyle={10}\)

You can also realise that \(\displaystyle{5}\%\) of \(\displaystyle{100}\) is \(\displaystyle{5}\)

so \(\displaystyle{5}\%\) of \(\displaystyle{200}\) will be \(\displaystyle{10},\)
