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]

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%.

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.

4.
What percent of the grid is not shaded?

 a. 24% b. 76% c. 0.76% d. 2.4%

5.
Which of the figures is shaded 33%?

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

6.
What percent of the grid is shaded?

 a. 17% b. 20% c. 15% d. 13%

7.
Which of the figures is 62% shaded?

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

8.
What percent of the grid is shaded?

 a. 26% b. 25% c. 74% d. 16%

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.
