Worksheet on Finding Value of a Percentage

Practice the questions given in the worksheet on finding value of a percentage.

We know, to find how much per cent one quantity is of another; suppose the value of x % of a quantity be y

The value of x % = y

Therefore, the value of 1 % = y/x

The value of 100 % = y/x × 100

Thus, the value of quantity = y/x × 100

Thus, the value of a quantity when the value of its certain percent is known = (given value/given percentage) × 100

1. Find x if:

(v) 70 % of x is 14 minutes           

(vi) 25 % of x is 30 days

2. Find the number whose 13 % is 780.
