PERCENTAGE SHORTCUTS

Doing percentage in mind will be easy. But needs continuous practice.

Let's take an example,
60% of 800.

100% of 800 = 800

50% of 800 = 400

10% of 800 = 80

5%  of 80 = 40

Thats it,  60% = 50% + 10% = 400 + 80 = 480.

Answer: 60% of 800 =480. (in mind in few secs...)

15% of 800.

10% + 5% = 80+40 = 120

Answer: 15% of 800 = 120. (in mind in few secs...)

Like it Share it.. See below for more examples..

90% of 800.

100% of 800 = 800

50% of 800 = 400

10% of 800 = 80

5%  of 80 = 40

Thats it,  90% = 100% - 10% = 800 - 80 = 740.

Answer: 90% of 800 = 740. (in mind in few secs...)

Another Example:

60% of 90, 25% of 90, 12% of 90,  85% of 90....

100% of 90 = 90

50% of 90 = 45

10% of 90 = 9

5%  of 90 = 4.5

1% of 90 = 0.9

Thats it,

60% of 90 = 50 % + 10% = 45 + 9 = 54.

Answer: 60% of 90 = 54. (in mind in few secs...)

25% of 90 = 10% + 10% + 5% = 9 + 9 + 4.5 = 22.5

Answer: 25% of 90 = 23.5 (in mind in few secs...)

12% of 90 = 10 % + 1% + 1% = 9 + 0.9 +0.9 =  9 + 1.8 = 10.8.

Answer: 12% of 90 = 10.8. (in mind in few secs...)

85% of 90 = 100% - 10% - 5% = 90 - 9 - 4.5 = 90 - 13.5 = 76.5

Answer: 85% of 90 = 76.5 (in mind in few secs...)
