Percents are ratios that compare a number
to 100.

Reading Math
Think of the % symbol as meaning /100.
0.75 = 75% = 75/100
To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide
the numerator by the denominator.
1
= 1 ÷ 8 = 0.125

To convert a decimal to a percent, multiply by
100 and insert the percent symbol.

0.125      100  12.5%

You can use information in each column to
make three equivalent circle graphs. One
shows the breakdown by fractions, one shows
the breakdown by decimals, and one shows the
breakdown by percents.

Application
Gold that is 24 karat is 100% pure gold. Gold
that is 14 karat is 14 parts pure gold and 10
parts another metal, such as copper, zinc,
silver, or nickel. What percent of 14 karat gold
is pure gold?
parts pure gold      14 = 7     Set up a ratio and
total parts        24 12      reduce.
7 =
7  12 = 0.583 = 58.3%     Find the percent.

So 14-karat gold is 58.3%, or 58 3 % pure
gold.
Try This
A baker’s dozen is 13. When a shopper
purchases a dozen items at the bakery they
get 12. It is said that the baker eats 1 item
from every batch. So, what percentage of the
food the baker cooks is eaten without being
sold?
items eaten           1      Set up a ratio and
total items        13      reduce.
1 =
1  13 = 0.077 = 7.7%  Find the percent.
13

So the baker, eats 7.7% of the items they
bake.
