## Percentages

### Miso

To stand any good chances to pass the test ensure that you can work out basic percentages inside out i.e. converting percentages to decimals, fractions and vice versa. Also ensure that you are familiar with concept of reverse percentages and learn how to work them out when presented in charts, tables and graphs..

### Percentages

Sarah, this is very easy and straightforward, just divide 560/3400 and to convert it into percentages multiply by 100, that is, 16.47%.

### Reverse Percenages

Hi, depending on the question, for example, for reverse percentages, if something increased say by 20% from year X to year Y and you are given figure Y and figure X needs to be worked out then apply foruma Y / (1+0.20, by practice you will become swift in these calculations
