## FAQs on Percentages CAT Previous Year Questions with Answer PDF

 1. What are percentages?
Ans. Percentages are a way to express a number as a fraction of 100. It helps in comparing two quantities and understanding their relative values. For example, if you score 80% on a test, it means you have achieved 80 out of 100 marks.
 2. How to calculate percentages?
Ans. To calculate a percentage, divide the given quantity by the total and multiply by 100. For example, if you want to find 20% of 50, you would divide 20 by 100 and then multiply the result by 50. The calculation would be (20/100) * 50 = 10.
 3. How to find the original value from a percentage increase or decrease?
Ans. To find the original value after a percentage increase or decrease, divide the final value by 1 plus (or minus) the percentage. For example, if the final price of an item after a 20% discount is \$80, you can find the original price by dividing \$80 by (1 - 0.20). The calculation would be \$80 / 0.80 = \$100.
 4. How to calculate percentage change?
Ans. Percentage change is calculated by dividing the difference between the new and old value by the old value, and then multiplying by 100. For example, if the price of a product increased from \$50 to \$60, the percentage change would be ((60 - 50) / 50) * 100 = 20%.
 5. How to solve percentage problems involving multiple percentages?
Ans. When dealing with multiple percentages, you should apply them one after another. For example, if an item is initially marked up by 20% and then discounted by 10%, you would first calculate the marked-up price (100% + 20%) and then calculate the discounted price (120% - 10%).
