### Re: PERCENTAGE SHORTCUT

I don't know what method you are using, but I would simply get out my calculator, convert the percentages to decimals and perform the indicated operations:

Q1. $.43\cdot2750-.38\cdot2990=46.3$

Q2. $$$.09\cdot386$$$$.065\cdot144$$=325.1664$

Q3. $.12\cdot980-\frac{x}{100}\cdot450=.3\cdot227$

$117.6-\frac{9}{2}x=68.1$

$49.5=4.5x$

$x=11$

Q4. $\frac{x}{100}\cdot8745=5159.55$

$x=5159.55\cdot\frac{100}{8745}=59$

Q5. $.53\cdot120+.25\cdot862=\frac{x}{100}\cdot500$

$63.6+215.5=5x$

$5x=279.1$

$x=55.82$

Q6. $\frac{1.8x}{2}=504$

$1.8x=1008$

$x=560$

Q7. $$$.0008\cdot363+.006\cdot241$$500=868.2$

Q8. $.31\cdot260x=12896$

$80.6x=12896$

$x=160$
