 1.  
What percent of the grid is shaded?


a.
136%
b.
3.6%
c.
0.36%
d.
36%


Solution:

In the figure, one complete grid having 100 squares is shaded.

In another grid 36 squares are shaded.

So, the percent of grid shaded is 136.
[100 + 36 = 136]


Correct answer : (1)
 2.  
Which of the figures is shaded 144%?

a.
Figure 1
b.
Figure 2
c.
Figure 4
d.
Figure 3


Solution:

In the Figure 3, one complete grid having 100 squares is shaded.

In another grid 44 squares are shaded.

Total number of shaded squares = 100 + 44 = 144

So, among the choices, the Figure 3 is shaded 144%.


Correct answer : (4)
 3.  
What percent of the grid is shaded?


a.
97%
b.
30%
c.
130%
d.
113%


Solution:

In the figure one complete grid having 100 squares is shaded.

In another grid 13 squares are shaded.

Total number of shaded squares = 100 + 13 = 113

So, the percent of grid shaded is 113.


Correct answer : (4)

 9.  
Which figure has the least shaded portion?

a.
Figure 3
b.
Figure 4
c.
Figure 1
d.
Figure 2


Solution:

Percent of the shaded region in Figure 1 = 36 / 100 = 36%

Percent of the shaded region in Figure 2 = 40 / 100 = 40%

Percent of the shaded region in Figure 3 = 39 / 100 = 39%

Percent of the shaded region in Figure 4 = 20 / 100 = 20%

20% < 36% < 39% < 40%
[Compare the percents.]

So, Figure 4 has the least shaded portion.
