# The percentages in practice

If every tenth apple on the tree is rotten it can be expressed by percentages: 10% of the apples on the tree is rotten.

Tell percent using the following information:

a. in June rained 6 days

b, increase worker pay 500 euros to 50 euros

c, grabbed 21 from 24 shots on goal keeper

d, of 150 carrot seeds not germinated 30 seeds

a =

b =

c =

d =

Tell percent using the following information:

a. in June rained 6 days

b, increase worker pay 500 euros to 50 euros

c, grabbed 21 from 24 shots on goal keeper

d, of 150 carrot seeds not germinated 30 seeds

**Result****20**%

b =

**10**%

c =

**87.5**%

d =

**20**%

#### Solution:

$$ \smash{ a = 6/30\cdot 100= 20 \% \\~\\b = 50/500\cdot 100= 10 \% \\~\\c = 21/24\cdot 100= 87.5 \% \\~\\d = 30/150\cdot 100= 20 \% } $$
