With this worksheet, students practice writing equivalent expressions involving percent problems. Students can see how taking 25% off an original price is the same as paying 75% of the price. Or how adding a 15% tip is the same as multiplying the bill by 1.15.
An example problem:
Jack bought a bike that was 35% off the original price. Let p represent the original price. What expressions can be used to calculate the sale price?
Answer: p - 0.35p and 0.65p
