Percentages are another area that children can find quite difficult. There are several key areas within percentages which need to be mastered in order.

Our selection of percentage worksheets will help you to find percentages of numbers and amounts, as well as working out percentage increases and decreases and converting percentages to fractions or decimals.

Key percentage facts:

- 50% = 0.5 = ½
- 25% = 0.25 = ¼ 75% = 0.75 = ¾
- 10% = 0.1 =
^{1}⁄_{10} - 1% = 0.01 =
^{1}⁄_{100}

This page will help you learn to find the percentage of a given number.

There is also a percentage calculator on the page to support you work through practice questions.

Here you will find a selection of worksheets on percentages designed to help your child understand how to work out percentages of different numbers.

The sheets are graded so that the easier ones are at the top.

The sheets have been split up into sections as follows:

- finding simple percentages 1%, 10%, 50% and 100%;
- finding multiples of 5%;
- finding any percentage of a number.

The percentage worksheets have been designed for children in 5th/6th grade, and all the sheets come with an answer sheet.
