# math: percent and fractions

posted by .

Can you give me two examples of two realistic percent problems in which the percents are actually nice fractions and the numbers involved are compatible with the fractions.
One problem should as for the part, given the whole and the percent. And the other problem should ask for the percent given the whole and the part.

I just need some examples ... so I can have an idea as to how to set-up the other problems.

Thanks a alot
