I created this product to help my students learn how to solve the most common types of percent problems:
1. 70% of 90 is what number? (unknown part)
2. 10% of what number is 25? (unknown whole)
3. What is 30% of 1000? (unknown percent)
A template (graphic organizer) and an example of using the template is provided for each of these types of problems as well as a list of words dealing with percentages and their mathematical "translations".
All three templates are given on one sheet, and each template is repeated a few times on its own sheet.
The idea is that the students complete problems using the templates and, after completing enough of them, complete the problems without the templates.
