We will discuss here how to calculate the metric measures as percentages. Now we will learn how to convert the cent as percentage of a dollar, centimetre as percentage of a meter, gram as percentage of a kilogram and millilitre as percentage of a litre.
Cent as percentage of a dollar:
100 cent = 1 dollar
1 cent = 1/100 of a dollar = 1 % of a dollar
So, we get, 2 cent = 2 % of a dollar
10 cent = 10 % of a dollar
For example, to find the value of 4 % of $ 75 = 4/100 × $ 75 = $ 3
Centimetre as percentage of a meter:
100 cm = 1 meter
1 cm = 1/100 of a metre = 1 % of a metre
So, we get, 3 cm = 3% of a metre
20 cm = 20 % of a metre
For example, find the value of 5% of 120 m = 5/100 × 120 m = 6 m
Gram as percentage of a kilogram:
1000 g = 1 kg
1g = 1/1000 of a kg = 1/10 × 1/100 of a kg
= 1/10 % of a kg = 0.1% of a kg
So, we get, 5 g = 0.5 % of a kg
375 g = 37. 5 % of a kg
For example, find the value of 20 % of 25 kg = 20/100 × 25 kg = 5 kg.
Millilitre as percentage of a litre:
1000 ml = 1 litre
1 ml = 1/1000 of a litre = 1/10 × 1/100 a litre
= 1/10 % of a litre = 0.1 % of a litre
So, we get, 8 ml = 0.8 % of a litre
235 ml = 23.5% of a litre
For example, find the value of 75 % of 128 l = 75/100 × 128 l = 96 l
