In this lesson, Professor Perez teaches how to write and solve percent equations from real-world applications. Using a structured format of "A percent of a total is a portion," he demonstrates how to solve problems involving percent of free throws made, percent of females in a population, total graduating students and amount of alcohol in a solution. Charlie is a great student who helps solve each problem and demonstrates that with practice, anyone can learn how to solve percent equations.
