Wacky Wanda Method


Wacky Wanda
Well there's an unusual name for something that is related to math and not just any math its percents!

What is the Wacky Wanda method? Well to do that you will need a problem so let's take the problem 10% of 600. Well first you will use the 'of and is method' and according to that "of" is the numerator and ''is'' serves as the denominator and since 600 has a of before it is a denominator and we do not know that numerator so we will write it like this:


Next you have to put the percent over a 100 like this:
  ?        10 
600     100

Next you have to multiply the numerator or the denominator of the first fraction which ever is provided and then divide that product by the 100 like this:
  ?     x   10    =  600 x 10=6000 
600       100       6000/100=60
So now we know that 10% of 600 is 60.
Now try some of these and make sure to watch the video on YouTube.
