### Exercise 16(A)

1. Express each of the following statements in the percentage form:

(i) 13 out of 20

(ii) 21 eggs out of 30 are good

Solution:

(i) 13 out of 20

The statement in the percentage form is shown below

13 / 20 Ã— 100 = 13 / 2 Ã— 10

= 13 Ã— 5

= 65%

(ii) The statement in the percentage form is shown below

21 / 30 Ã— 100 = 21 / 3 Ã— 10

= 7 Ã— 10

= 70%

Hence, 70% of eggs are good

2. Express the following fractions as percent:

(i) 3 / 200

(ii) 5 / 6

(iii) 65 / 80

(iv) 2 / 3

Solution:

(i) 3 / 200

Fractions as percentage is shown below

3 / 200 Ã— 100 = 3 / 2

We get,

= 1.5%

(ii) 5 / 6

Fractions as percentage is shown below

5 / 6 Ã— 100 = 500 / 6

On calculating, we get

=
%

(iii) 65 / 80

Fractions as percentage is shown below

65 / 80 Ã— 100 = 65 / 8 Ã— 10

= 325 / 4

On further calculation, we get

=
%

(iv) 2 / 3

Fractions as percentage is shown below

2 / 3 Ã— 100 = 200 / 3

On calculating, we get

=
%

3. Express as percent:

(i) 0.10

(ii) 0.02

(iii) 0.7

(iv) 0.15

(v) 0.032

Solution:

(i) 0.10

The given decimal expressed in percent is as follows

0.10 Ã— 100 = 10 / 100 Ã— 100

We get,

= 10%

(ii) 0.02

The given decimal expressed in percent is as follows

0.02 Ã— 100 = 2 / 100 Ã— 100

We get,

= 2%

(iii) 0.7

The given decimal expressed in percent is as follows

0.7 Ã— 100 = 7 / 10 Ã— 100

We get,

= 70%

(iv) 0.15

The given decimal expressed in percent is as follows

0.15 Ã— 100 = 15 / 100 Ã— 100

We get,

= 15%

(v) 0.032

The given decimal expressed in percent is as follows

0.032 Ã— 100 = 32 / 1000 Ã— 100

We get,

= 3.2%

4. Convert into fractions in their lowest terms:

(i) 8%

(ii) 20%

(iii) 85%

(iv) 250%

(v) 12 Â½ %

Solution:

(i) 8%

Fraction in its lowest form is shown below

8 / 100 = 4 / 50

We get,

= 2 / 25

(ii) 20%

Fraction in its lowest form is shown below

20 / 100 = 2 / 10

We get,

= 1 / 5

(iii) 85%

Fraction in its lowest form is shown below

85 / 100 = 17 / 20

(iv) 250%

Fraction in its lowest form is shown below

250 / 100 = 25 / 10

On further calculation, we get

= 5 / 2

=

(v) 12 Â½ %

Fraction in its lowest form is shown below

(25 / 2) % = 25 / 200

On further calculation, we get

= 5 / 40

= 1 / 8

5. Express as decimal fractions:

(i) 25%

(ii) 108%

(iii) 95%

(iv) 4.5%

(v) 29.2%

Solution:

(i) 25%

The statement expressed as decimal fraction is given below

25 / 100

= 0.25

Hence, the decimal fraction of 25% is 0.25

(ii) 108%

The statement expressed as decimal fraction is given below

108 / 100

= 1.08

Hence, the decimal fraction of 108% is 1.08

(iii) 95%

The statement expressed as decimal fraction is given below

95 / 100

= 0.95

Hence, the decimal fraction of 95% is 0.95

(iv) 4.5%

The statement expressed as decimal fraction is given below

4.5 / 100 = 45 / 1000

We get,

= 0.045

Hence, the decimal fraction of 4.5% is 0.045

(v) 29.2%

The statement expressed as decimal fraction is given below

29.2 / 100 = 292 / 1000

We get,

= 0.292
