Mathnasium #MathTricks: For Each Hundred (Basic)

Sep 17, 2021

Let us show you a secret: percent means something.

Per means for each, and cent means hundred.

If we want to find 5% of 300, we need to find “5 for each hundred”.

So, we count, 5 for the first hundred, 5 for the second hundred, and 5 for the third hundred.

5, 3 times = 15, so 5% of 300 is 15!
