FINDING THE RATE OR PERCENT WHEN
THE PERCENTAGE AND BASE ARE GIVEN

A DepEd-BEAM Distance Learning Program supported by the Australian Agency for International Development
To the Learner

## A pleasant morning to you! How are you today? I am

exercises in the previous lesson?
Well, this time I will teach you how to find the rate
when the percentage and base are given. Are you ready?

## This learning module discusses how to find the rate or

percent when the percentage and base are given.

Let’s Study This

## There are 24 carabaos in the farm and 6 of them are

male. What percent of the 24 carabaos are male?
Think: What percent of 24 is 6?

Solution:
Step 1: Write an equation. n x 24 = 6
Step 2: Divide n = 6 /4

.25
24 _6.00
48
_120
120

0
Step 3: Multiply the quotient by 100 or simply
move the decimal point two places to the right.

## .25 x 100 = 25 or .25 = 25

Step 4: Affix the percent symbol. 25%

The rate is the quantity expressed as percent. To solve for
the

R = P = 100%
B

Where, P = percentage
B = base
R = rate

Other examples:

## Rate Base Percentage

R = P x 100% or R = P / B x 100%
B

R = 12 x 100%
150

0.8
150 _12.00
0
_120
0

_1200
1200

0
R = 0.08x 100% or 0.08 = 8%

R = 8% R = 8%

## 2.) What percent of 80 is 60?

62
Rate Base Percentage

R = P x 100%
B

R = 60 x 100%
80

0.75
80 _60.00
0
_600
560

_400
400

0
R = 0.75x 100% or 0.75 = 75%

R = 75% R = 75%

##  To find the rate, divide the percentage by the base and

multiply this 100% or you can simply move the decimal
point in the quotient two places to the right. You can use
this formula.

R = P x 100%
B

Let’s Test Ourselves

## 7. What percent of 65 is 13?

8. 1 is what percent of 8?

## 10. what percent of 20 is 2?

65
Let’s Consider This

## If you got 8-10, excellent! You may now proceed to the

next lesson.
If you got 5-7, answer “Let’s Enrich Ourselves.”
If you got below 5, you need to repeat the given
activities!

Let’s Enrich
Ourselves

## Direction: Find the rate to complete the table.
