with different wordings
This generator makes worksheets where the student calculates a percentage of a number, finds the percentage when the number and the part are given, or finds the number when the percentage and the part are given. You can make the worksheets either in PDF or html formats — both are easy to print. The problems are presented in words, and you can choose the types of wording to use.
All worksheets come with an answer key on the 2nd page of the file.
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.

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.
