Percentage of Number Worksheets

Find here an unlimited supply of printable worksheets for calculating a given percentage of a number for grades 6-8, both as PDF and html files (html files are editable). Options include choosing the range for the percentage and for the base number, the number of decimal digits, limiting the percentage and the base number to a multiple of a certain number (the "step" option in the generator), font size, workspace, border, and more.


Basic instructions for the worksheets

Each worksheet is randomly generated and thus unique. The answer key is automatically generated and is placed on the second page of the file.

You can generate the worksheets either in html or PDF format — both are easy to print. To get the PDF worksheet, simply push the button titled "Create PDF" or "Make PDF worksheet". To get the worksheet in html format, push the button "View in browser" or "Make html worksheet". This has the advantage that you can save the worksheet directly from your browser (choose File → Save) and then edit it in Word or other word processing program.

Sometimes the generated worksheet is not exactly what you want. Just try again! To get a different worksheet using the same options:

  • PDF format: come back to this page and push the button again.
  • Html format: simply refresh the worksheet page in your browser window.

Tip: Set the "step" for the percentage in the generator to be 10 or 25, and limit the range for the base to multiples of ten to create percent problems you can solve in your head, such as "Find 25% of 60 or find 60% of 900".

Key to Percents Workbooks

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.
