Today will we look at the 3 rd and last type of percent set-up. We will be looking for the “total” amount or some times called the “base”.
part %
total 100
6.
The total is very easy to identify because it follow the word “OF”.
For example, 20% of _____ is 10
And, as the other 2 types, some of these you will be able to do mentally, while others require the use of a proportion
50
7.

EXAMPLE 3 Finding a Base 24 is 0.8% of what number? x = 3000 25 x = 0.8 100 0.8x 25( 100) = 0.8x 3,000 = 0.8 0.8
9.
If you left a 20 % tip for your meal, how much did the meal cost if the tip was $2.55?
x = $12.75 2.55 x = 20 100 20x 2.55( 100) = 20x 255 = 20 20
10.
Using a proportion
75% of what number is 15?
x = 20 15 x = 75 100 75x 15( 100) = 75x 1,500 = 75 75
11.
Using a proportion
16 is 200% of ______?
x = 8 16 x = 200 100 200x 16( 100) = 200x 1,600 = 200 200
12.
Using a proportion
8 % of ______ is 20.
x = 250 20 x = 8 100 8x 20( 100) = 8x 2,000 = 8 8
