**Example 1: There are 200 students in a class.
Out of them, 90 are girls.
Find the percentage of girls in the class?**

Solution: We are given,

Total students in the class=200

Girls in the class = 90

Percentage of girls in the class = (Girls in the class⁄ Total no. of students) × 100

Percentage of girls in the class = (90/200)x100 = 45%

Calculate the new price?**

Solution: We are given,

Price of the Candy= $1.50

Increase in the price of candy= 25% or 25/100

New Price of candy= Old Price + increase in price

New Price of candy= 1.50 +25/100

New Price of candy= 1.50 + 1.50 ×.25

New Price of candy= $ 1.875

**Example 3: Radha earns a monthly salary of $1200.
She spends $280/month on food.

Salary saved by Radha = $(1200 – 280) = $920

Percentage of salary she saves = (920/1200)×100 = 920/12 = 76.667 %
