Subject: teaching percents

Another good way to teach percentages is the same thing that Jamie said up above, but I learned it like this: fifty five percent of 60 is what? 55 x ------ = ------- 100 60 Then, you cross multiply 100x = 3300 And divide: 100x 3300 ---- & ---- 100 100 So, x=33. 33 is 55% of 60.
