#### Percentage Questions For Class 7 – Find sum of money when a Percentage of such sum is given

**Question 1**

A man has a certain unknown sum of money, 60 % of that sum is ₹ 4800. What is the sum of money?

**Explanation:**

The problem can be solved using linear equation.

Let the unknown sum of money be ₹ a

We know, that 60 % of ₹ a = ₹ 4800

60 % x a = ₹ ( 4800 )

x a = ₹ ( 4800 )

a = ₹ ( )

= ₹ 8000

Therefore, the unknown sum of money available with the man is ₹ 8000

#### Percentage Questions For Class 7 – Finding actual quantity from Percentage value

**Question 2**

Find 71 % of 3600 metres

**Explanation:**

Step 1 – Convert the Percentage into Fraction

i.e 71 % =

Step 2 – Multiply the Fraction with given quantity.

i.e, ( x 3600 ) metres = 2556 metres

Hence, 71 % of 3600 metres = 2556 metres

#### Percentage Questions For Class 7 – Find what percentage of a given quantity is another term

**Question 3**

What percent of 60 m is 9 m ?

**Explanation:**

Let a % of 60 m = 9 m

Step 1 – Convert the Percentage into Fraction

i.e a % =

Step 2 – Multiply the Fraction with given quantity.

i.e, ( ) m = ( 9 ) m

= 9

a =

a = 15

Hence, 9 m is 15 % of 60 m

**Question 4**

What percent of 80 kg is 28 kg ?

**Explanation:**

Let a % of 80 kg = 28 kg

Step 1 – Convert the Percentage into Fraction

i.e a % =

Step 2 – Multiply the Fraction with given quantity.

i.e, ( ) kg = ( 28 ) kg

= 28

a =

a = 35

Hence, 28 kg is 35 % of 80 kg

**Question 5**

What percent of 30 litres is 6 litres ?

**Explanation:**

Let a % of 30 litres = 6 litres

Step 1 – Convert the Percentage into Fraction

i.e a % =

Step 2 – Multiply the Fraction with given quantity.

i.e, ( ) litres = ( 6 ) litres

= 6

a =

a = 20

Hence, 6 litres is 20 % of 30 litres

#### Percentage Questions For Class 7 – Finding a number when its decreased percentage is given

**Question 6**

A number when decreased by 10 % gives 45 . The number is?

**Explanation:**

Here we take the help of linear equation. First we will form the equation.

Let the number be ‘a’

10 % of ‘a’ = a

Since, the equation is:

a – a = 45

Taking 100 as LCM on LHS

= 45

a = 45

a =

a = 50

Hence, the number is 50

#### Percentage Questions For Class 7 – Finding a number when its increased percentage is given

**Question 7**

A number, when increased by 40 % gives 84 . The number is?

**Explanation:**

The problem can be solved using linear equation.

Let the number be a’

40 % of a’ = a

We are given that a + = 84

Taking 100 as LCM on LHS

= 84

a = 84

a =

a = 60

Hence, the number is 60
