# Percent Detective

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet challenges students to find the missing percentage values that correspond to given totals and results. Each problem presents a scenario where a certain percentage of a number is known, and the student must determine the percentage itself. The focus is on reverse calculation, where students work backward from the result to discover the missing percentage. This type of exercise helps students practice and reinforce their understanding of how percentages work and how they can be manipulated to find unknowns.

The worksheet aims to teach students how to solve problems involving percentages by requiring them to think critically and work in reverse. Instead of simply calculating a percentage, students are tasked with deducing what percentage of a given number results in the provided outcome. This exercise reinforces their understanding of the relationship between parts and wholes and strengthens their ability to perform percentage calculations from different angles. By completing these problems, students enhance their problem-solving skills and deepen their comprehension of percentage concepts.
