# WHAT PERCENTAGE IS ILLUSTRATED

What percentage is illustrated :

Percent means parts out of 100. In this section, we will learn, how to find the percentage that is illustrated.

## What percentage is illustrated  - Steps

To find what percentage is illustrated in the given picture, we have to follow the steps given below.

Step 1 :

Count the total number of sections in the given picture.

Step 2 :

Count the number of shaded portions.

Step 3 :

Write the number of shaded portion in the numerator and total number of portions in the denominator.

Step 4 :

If the denominator is 100, then we can leave it as is is. Otherwise we have to convert the denominator as 100. For that we have to multiply both numerator and denominator by some number according to the number that we have in the denominator already.

## How to find shading percentages from pictures - Examples

Example 1 :

What percentage of the shape is green? Solution :

Total number of sections  =  100

Number of shaded portions  =  71

Percentage of shaded portions  =  71/100

Hence, 71% shape is green.

Example 2 :

What percentage of the shape is shaded? Solution :

Total number of sections  =  4

Number of shaded portions  =  1

Percentage of shaded portions  =  1/4

In order to convert the denominator as 100, we have to multiply 4 by 25.

Then, we have

=  (1/4)  (25/25)

=  25 / 100

=  25%

Example 3 :

What percentage of the shape is shaded? Solution :

Total number of sections  =  2

Number of shaded portions  =  1

Percentage of shaded portions  =  1/2

In order to convert the denominator as 100, we have to multiply 2 by 50.

=  (1 / 2)  (50 / 50)

=  50/100

=  50%

Example 4 :

What percentage of the shape is shaded? Solution :

Total number of sections  =  100

Number of shaded portions  =  55

Percentage of shaded portions  =  55/100

Example 5 :

What percentage of the shape is rounded? Solution :

Total number of stars  =  10

Number of stars rounded  =  2

Percentage of rounded stars  =  2/10

In order to convert the denominator as 100, we have to multiply 10 by 10.

=  (2 / 10)  (10 / 10)

=  20 / 100 After having gone through the stuff given above, we hope that the students would have understood, how to find the percentage illustrated.
