Write the percent for shaded portion

  1. 50%
  2. 60%
  3. 70%
  4. 80%

Hint:

 Fractions are represented as a numerical value, which defines a part of a whole. A fraction can be a portion or section of any quantity out of a whole, where the whole can be any number, a specific value, or a thing. Let us understand this concept using an example. The following figure shows a pizza that is divided into 8 equal parts. Now, if we want to express one selected part of the pizza, we can express it as 1/8 which shows that out of 8 equal parts, we are referring to 1 part.

The correct answer is: 80%


    Here, Shaded portion = 8 over 10, this means out of 10 parts, 8 parts are shaded.
    Convert fraction into percentage, multiply by 100 and add the symbol %.

    8 over 10 cross times 100 equals space 80 straight percent sign
    Thus, the shaded portion is 80% of whole.
