Once students learn to find the percent of a number (such as "what is 75% of 200?"), it's tough for them to find the whole from the percent (such as "150 is 75% of what number?").
But with the visual models and the simple part/whole ratios on this worksheet, they will grasp the concept in no time! Check out the thumbnail images here to see the simple way this handout is structured. Use it for homework, partner work, or extra practice.
