Percentage Exercise 7.1 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(a) 2%

=  2/100

=  1/50

2 percent as fraction = 1/50

(b) 17.5%

= 175/100

= 7/4

=  1 3/4

17.5 percent as fraction = 1 3/4

(c) 4.25%

= 425/100 × 100

= 17/400

4.25 percent as fraction = 17/400

(d) 3 1/8%

= 25/8 × 100

= 1/32

3 1/8 percent as fraction = 1/32

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(a) 1/12

= (1/12 × 100)

= 25/3

= 8 1/3%

1/12 as percentage = 8 1/3%

(b) 29/50

= (29/50 × 100)

= 58%

29/50 as percentage = 58%

(c) 51/10

=  (51/10 × 100)

=  510%

51/10 as percentage = 510%

(d) 6 1/4

=  (25/4 × 100)

= 625%

6 1/4 as percentage = 625%

Question no – (3)

Solution :

(a) 1%

= 1/100

= 0.01

1% as decimal = 0.01

(b) 75%

= 75/100

= 3/4

= 0.75

75% as decimal = 0.75

(c) 3 1/8%

= 25/8 × 100

=  5/40

=  1/32

=  0.03125

3 1/8% as decimal = 0.03125

(d) 12.5%

=  125/10 × 100

=  5/40

=  1/8

= 0.125

12.5 % as decimal = 0.125

Question no -(4)

Solution :

(a) 0.21

= 21/100

0.21 as percentage = 21%

(b) 0.02

= 2/100

= 2%

0.02 as percentage = 2%

(c) 1.2

= 12/100 × 100

= 120%

1.2 as percentage = 120%

(d) 0.125

= (125/1000 × 100)

= 12.5%

0.125 as percentage = 12.5%

Question no – (5)

Solution :

(a) 3%

= 3/100

= 3 : 100

3% as ratio = 3 : 100

(b) 48%

= 48 : 100

= 12 : 25

48% as ratio = 12 : 25

(c) 8 1/3%

= 25/3 × 100

= 25 :  300

= 1 : 12

8 1/3% as ratio = 1 : 12

(d) 7.5%

= 7.5/100

= 7.5 :  100

= 75 :  1000

= 3 : 40

7.5 % as ratio = 3 : 40

Question no – (6)

Solution :

(a) 3 : 10

= 3/10 × 100

=  30%

3 : 10 as percentage = 30%

(b) 13 : 60

= (13/69 × 100)

= 65/3

=  21 2/3%

13 : 60 as percentage = 21 2/3%

(c) 3 : 4

= (3/4 × 100)

= 75%

3 : 4 as percentage = 75%

(d) 8 : 5

= (8/5 × 100)

= 160%

8 : 5 as percentage = 160%

Percentage Exercise 7.2 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(a) 2000 : 4

=  4/2000 × 100

=  0.2%

(b) 2.80 : 0.56

= (0.56/280 × 100)

=  20%

(c) 3.5 l : 630 l

= (3.5 × 100

=  3500

(d) 7 1/3 kg : 5 1/2 kg

= (51/2 / 7 1/3 × 100)

= (11/2 / 22/3 × 100)

= 11/2 × 3/22 × 100

= 75%

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(a) 15% of Rs 80

= (15/100 × 80)

=  12 Rs.

(b) 6.5% of 1,400

= (6.5/100 × 1400)

= 91 Rs.

(c) 8 1/3% of 4 dozes

= {(25/3 × 100 × (4 × 12)}

= (25/300 × 48)

= 4

(d) 30% of 1 l 20 ml

= (30/100 × 1020) ml

= 306 ml

Question no – (3)

Solution :

(a) 500 by 3.4%

= (500 + 500 × 3.4/100)

= (500 + 17)

=  517 Rs.

(b) 125 by 125%

= 125 + (125 × 125/100)

= 125 + 156.25

= 281.25 Rs.

(c) 2400 by 16 2/3%

= 2400 + (2400 × 50/300)

= 2400 + 400

=  2800 Rs

(d) 11.20 m by 25%

= 11.20 + (11.20 × 25/100)

= 11.20 + 2.8

= 14 m

Question no – (4)

Solution :

(a) 50 by 12.5%

=  50 – (50 × 12.5/100)

= 50 – 6.25

= 43.75

(b) 25,000 by 50%

= (25000 – 25000 × 50/100)

= (25000 – 12500)

= 12500

(c) 15.40 by 15%

= 15.40 – (15.40 × 5/100)

= 15.40 – 2.31

= 13.09

(d) 15 kg by 16 2/3%

= 15 – (15 × 16 2/3 / 100)

= 15 – 2.5

= 12.5 kg

Question no – (5)

Solution :

= 40/3% 520

1% 520/ 40/3

100% 520 × 3 × 100/40

= 3900

Now, 3 12/13% of the same amount,

= (3900 × 51/13/100)

= 15300/100

= 153 Rs.

Therefore, 3 12/13% of the same amount will be Rs 153.
