GED Math Chapter 9: Percent, Rates, Ratio and Proportions – Lesson 2

OK, welcome to lesson 2 the topic is percent.  If there was one math skill you need for the GED percent just might be that skill.  Of course you need to know more math than just percent however I can’t overstate the importance of understanding how to solve percent problems.  Make sure you have a calculator to help you perform some of the calculations.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• the definition of percent
• how to solve percent problems by equations
• how to solve percent problems by proportions

Chapter 9 Lesson 2


You attract what you think…so watch out for any negative pictures you hold in your mind. 

Well done you finished lesson 2. Here are some things you should be able to do:

  • Find the percent of a number
  • Set up a percent equation and solve it
  • Set up a percent proportion and solve it

OK, let’s get started on the next lesson on direct and inverse variation.

Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
