This generator makes worksheets for calculating the given percentage of a number. You can choose the range of the percentage and of the base number. Using the step 10 or 25 for the percentage and limiting the range for the numbers creates problems you can solve with mental math, such as "Find 25% of 60 or find 60% of 900". Change the different options to see what their effect is.
After you have generated a worksheet, refresh the page from your browser window to get another worksheet with different problems but using the same options.
All of the worksheets come with an answer key; however, you need to click the link to the answer key immediately after generating the worksheet, because the answer key is only generated when you click on that link. Because of this, you cannot find the answer key for a specific worksheet later on, should you come looking for it.

Key to Percents first emphasizes mental computation and estimation skills--since most work with percents is done without pencil and paper. Then students are taught to solve percent problems using equal fractions and decimal multiplication. Finally, percents are used to solve word problems in a variety of applications. Key to Percents assumes only a knowledge of fraction and decimal computation. Book 1 covers Percent Concepts. Book 2 covers Percents and Fractions. Book 3 covers Percents and Decimals.
