1)Introduction 1. i) What is Percentage ? Percentage per – cent (100) Why percentage? To convert any base values to 100 © Department of Analytical Skills

1. ii) Application: The concept of percentage is applied in many other important topics like profit and loss, data interpretation, simple and compound interest etc. The shortcuts which you are going to learn will be very useful if it is applied in these topics. © Department of Analytical Skills

2) Shortcuts 2. i) Shortcut 1: Splitting of values a) 20% of 80 = ? 100% of 80 = 80 10% of 80 = 8 20% of 80 = 16 Try 30% of 60 b) 15% of 80 = ? 10% of 80= 8 5% of 80 = 4 15% of 80 = 12 Try 15% of 60 © Department of Analytical Skills

c) 12% of 80 = ? 10% of 80 = 8 1% of 80 = 0. 8 2% of 80 = 1. 6 12% of 80 = 9. 6 Try 13% of 60 d) 45% of 80 = ? 50% of 80 = 40 5% of 80 = 4 45% of 80 = 36 Try 45% of 60 © Department of Analytical Skills

e) 18% of 80 = ? 10% of 80 = 8 20% of 80 = 16 2% of 80 = 1. 6 18% of 80 = 14. 4 Try 27% of 60 © Department of Analytical Skills

2. ii) Shortcut 2: Decimal 3. 555% of 80 = ? 10% of 80 = 8 1% of 80 = 0. 8 3% of 80 = 2. 4 5% of 80 = 4 0. 5% of 80 = 0. 4 0. 05% of 80 = 0. 04 0. 005% of 80 = 0. 004 3. 555% of 80 = 2. 844 Try 5. 333% of 60 © Department of Analytical Skills

2. iii) Shortcut 3: How do you solve 12. 5% of 80 = ? 10% + 2% + 0. 5% ? How much time will the following question take? 12. 5% of 8. 8 = ? Now this 16. 66% of 3. 6 = ? 12. 5% of 80 = ? 1 = 100% 1/2 = 50% 1/4 = 25% 1/8 = 12. 5% ∴ 12. 5% of 80 = 1/8 of 80 = 10 © Department of Analytical Skills

Similarly 12. 5% of 8. 8 = 1/8 of 8. 8 = 1. 1 16. 66% of 3. 6 = 1/6 of 3. 6 = 0. 6 Lets learn to convert few more fraction values 1 = 100% 1/2 = 50% 1/3 = 33. 33% 1/4 = 25% (half of ½) 1/5 = 20% 1/6 = 16. 66% (half of 1/3) 1/7 = 14. 28% 1/8 = 12. 5% (half of ¼) 1/9 = 11. 11% (1/3 rd of 1/3) 1/10 = 10% 1/11 = 9. 09% Note: 1/9 x will be in the multiples of 11 1/11 x will be in the multiples of 9 © Department of Analytical Skills

1/9 = 11. 11%, 2/9= 22. 22%, 3/9= 33. 33%. . 1/11 = 9. 09% 2/11= 18. 18%, 3/11= 27. 27%. . © Department of Analytical Skills

2. iv) Shortcut 4: How do you solve 62% of 150 = ? 10% to 60% 1% to 2% Then 60% + 2% ? No a% of b can be written as b% of a Proof: a% of b = b% of a a/100 x b = b/100 x a ab/100 = ab/100 ∴ 62% of 150 = 150% of 62 = 100% + 50% of 62 = 62 + 31 = 93 Why should we interchange 62 and 150? Because splitting 150 is easier than splitting 62 So whenever the right hand side value is easier, interchange the values. Try 84% of 250 Try 72% of 90 © Department of Analytical Skills

Example 1: Try 35% of 40 Try 2. 4242% of 80 Try 33. 33% of 12 Try 75% of 16 Try 66. 66% of 9 Try 37. 5% of 24 Try 55. 55% of 18 Try 45. 45% of 121 Try 3. 6% of 133. 33 Solution for the last question: 3. 6% of 133. 33 = 133. 33% of 3. 6 = 100% of 3. 6 + 33. 33% of 3. 6 = 3. 6 + 1/3 rd of 3. 6 = 3. 6 + 1. 2 = 4. 8 © Department of Analytical Skills

3)Percentage increase and decrease 3. i) Increase and decrease Example: 25 20 year 1 year 2 What is the percentage increase from the 1 st year to the 2 nd ? What is the increase? 5 From where it is increasing? 20 Percentage increase = 5/20 * 100 = ¼ * 100 = 25% © Department of Analytical Skills

What is the percentage decrease from the 2 nd year to the 1 st? What is the decrease? 5 From where it is decreasing? 25 Percentage increase = 5/25 * 100 = 1/5 * 100 = 20% © Department of Analytical Skills

Example 2: Ram makes $50 a week from his job. He earns a raise and now makes $60 a week. What is the percent increase? A. B. C. D. 16. 66% 20% 25% 50% Solution: Percentage increase = 10/50 * 100 = 20% © Department of Analytical skills

3. ii) Increase/ decrease shortcut: If there are 100 chocolates with me and it is increased by 10%, then what will be the total number of chocolates now? 110? 10%` Yes 100 110 Now from 110 to get back to 100, what should be the percentage decrease? 10% again? No Because from 110 if 10% is decreased it will become 99. (10% of 110 = -11) © Department of Analytical Skills

99 110 10% To find the decrease easily lets learn a shortcut. Between two values if the increase is 1/n, then the decrease will be 1/n+1. ∴ Increase % = 10% = 1/10 Decrease % = 1/11 = 9. 09% ∴ From 110 to 100 the decrease % should be 9. 09% Similarly for the previous question if you observe Increase % = 25% = 1/4 Decrease % = 1/5 = 20% © Department of Analytical Skills

Example 3: If A's height is 33. 33% less than that of B, how much percent B's height is more than that of A? A) B) C) D) 20% 25% 33. 33% 50% Solution: 33. 33% decrease = 1/3 ∴ Increase = 1/2 = 50%

Important application of 1/n shortcut: If the price of a commodity increases by 1/n, then the consumption should be reduced by 1/n+1 to make the expenditure same. Expenditure = Price * Consumption 1/n+1 This can be applied in many other topics like time speed and distance in the formula D = S * T etc. © Department of Analytical Skills

Example 4: A person buys 750 litres of milk every year and the price of the milk is Rs 20 per litre. If the price of the milk increases to Rs 25 per litre next year, what amount of milk he/she can buy for the same expense as in the previous year? A. 500 litres B. 562. 50 litres C. 600 litres D. 9000 litres Solution: Price increase = 5/20 =¼ ∴ Consumption decrease = 1/5 th of 750 litres = 150 litres should be decreased Consumption = 750 – 150 litres = 600 litres © Department of Analytical skills

3. iii) Successive increase/decrease: Example: A car is moving at some constant speed. At first it increases its speed by 25% and then again it increases its speed by 20%. What is the overall percentage increase. Method 1: Initial speed of the car = x Speed of the car after 1 st increase = x + 0. 25 x = 1. 25 x Speed of the car after 2 nd increase = 1. 25 x + 0. 25 x = 1. 50 x Initial speed = x Final speed = 1. 50 x Percentage increase = 50% © Department of Analytical Skills

Method 2: Assume the initial speed of the car as 100 kmph Initial speed of the car = 100 Speed of the car after the 1 st increase = 125 Speed of the car after the 2 nd increase = 150 Initial speed = 100 Final speed = 150 Percentage increase = 50% © Department of Analytical Skills

Method 3: Shortcut If the 1 st increase/ decrease is a% and the 2 nd increase/decrease is b% the overall increase/decrease % will be a + b + ab/100 % In this question a = 25% and b= 20% Overall increase/decrease = 25 + 20 + (25)(20)/100 = 25 + 20 + 5 = 50 % Note: If a or b is increase, then include +ve sign If a or b is decrease, then include -ve sign. Note : The final answer will be in percentage © Department of Analytical Skills

Example 5: A city’s population was 10, 000 at the end of 2008. In 2009, it increased by 25% and in 2010, it decreased by 8%. What was the city’s population at the end of 2010? A. 8500 B. 11500 C. 11700 D. 13333 Solution: 25 + (-8) + (25) (-8)/100 % = 25 – 8 – 200/100 % = 25 – 8 – 2 % = 15 % © Department of Analytical Skills

Important application of a + b + ab/100 % shortcut: If the price of a commodity increases/decreases by a% and the consumption increases/reduces by b% then the expenditure will increase/decrease by a + b + ab/100 % Expenditure = Price * Consumption This can be applied in many other topics like time speed and distance in the formula D = S * T etc. © Department of Analytical Skills

Example 6: Water tax is increased by 20% but its consumption is decreased by 20%. Then, the increase or decrease percentage in the expenditure of the money is: a) No change b) 5% decrease c) 4% increase d) 4% decrease Solution: 20 + (-20) + (20) (-20)/100 % = 20 – 400/100 % = 20 – 4 % = -4 % = 4% decrease
