What do you notice
about this shape?
To work out the
percentage we
first need to find
what % each part
is worth?
To do this we need
to divide a 100 by
the number of
parts.
100% ÷ 20 = 5%
Each part = 5%
What percentage
of the shape is
shaded purple?
5% x 13 = 65%
What percentage
of the shape is
shaded white?
5% x 7 = 35%
65% + 35% = 100%
Steps to success
1) Remember one whole is equal to 100%
2) Find the percentage of parts shaded
3) Check to see if the unshaded part +
the shaded part = 100
For shapes not divided into 100 parts. Use this formula
to work out what percentage each part is worth;
100 ÷ No. of parts in a shape = % of each part
100 ÷ 2 (no. of parts) = 50%
Each part of this shape = 50%
So 50% is shaded blue
50% is shaded white
