In this module, you can study how to solve percent problems. There are lots of different methods for solving percentage problems. You can use simple formulae, set up a proportion or use a grid or pyramid, to name a few. On this page, you can study three different ways of solving percent problems.

This first video shows you how to use the proportion method to solve percentage problems.

The video above shows you how to use the formula method for solving percentage problems.

There are only three basic types of percent problems:

(1) What is Y% of Z?

(2) X is Y% of what?

(3) X is what % of Z?

- Read about solving percent problems by using a "pyramid grid"This link takes you to an interactive slide show where you can learn how to use a pyramid grid to solve percent problems.
