My son always divides the total by 10 first to find 10% and then works out total from there.

eg 35% of 300

10% = 30 5% = 15
30% =90

so 35% = 105

I am sure someone will tell you a much easier way but he always seems to get the correct answer fairly quickly.

Percentages is a big area of maths. Can you be more specific?

To find a percentage of a certain total:

E.g. 17% of 300

Find 1% - 300 divided by 100 = 3.

17% will be 17 x 3. This is 51.
