In this lesson, we will learn what a percentage is and how we can write percentages. This lesson is very important and it will discuss the basics of percentages for 6th grade. So let's start!
What is a Percentage?A percentage is just a part of 100. In order to write a percentage, you need to use the percentage sign.
Here are some examples of Percentages:
- 43% is also 43/100 or .43
- 76% is also 76/100 or .76
- 23% is also 23/100 or .23
What is not a Percentage?We know that percentages are a part of a hundred. How do we know when a percentage is not a percentage?
We can tell by looking at the number. If the number is greater than a hundred, then it is not a percentage:
450% 101% 263%
