In this tutorial the instructor shows how to solve percent equations. The general form of a percent equations is that a is b% of c. As there can be three kinds of variables a, b, c, the questions involving percent equations can be of three types having one of the three variables unknown. These kind of percent statements can be solved easily by setting up an equation. So, to convert percent statement into a equation replace the unknown term with n, the 'is' term with equals sign and the '%' sign with 'multiplication' symbol and drop the 'of' word. For example '? is 25% of 60' changes into 'n = .25 x 60'. Solving this gives the value of unknown number. This video shows how to solve percent equations.
