Percentage - Learning Objectives

Calculating percentages is a basic skill. Every day we deal with data which becomes meaningful if we convert the figures into percentage. Stock market indices, comparison with different sets of data, growth or decline – these become easy if we are able to deal with percentages. Students should therefore learn to calculate percentages quickly.
In CAT, direct sums on arithmetic are less frequently asked, but percentage will be used in many sums. In Data Interpretation and Data Sufficiency, finding percentages becomes very useful. In questions on commercial arithmetic, including profit and loss, ratio, finding quick percentages is a useful skill.
