Yen shenld be familiar with Part 1 ef this UNIT. The cencepts ef Katie and Preperiien {UNIT 3) are need in the later examples ef
this Part. Yen will require a calcnlater. Percentages A fractien which has a denerninater IUD is eften written with a special symhnl
and referred tn as a percentage.

allewecl te retain F511}. Se we keep three times what we give tn the gtwernment. The ether helpful cencept is that in 101] parts 135% is 25 parts. In the case ef the
taxpayer it might be in ever}! £100, £25 will be tax. Example {1) Find 3%941 ef rises 3.5

percentage increase? Increase = £12.50 — £11.10 = £1.40. We have te express this increase as a percentage ef the eriginal premium.
