MIDDLE LEVEL SSAT SAMPLE QUESTIONS: Percentage Problem
Here’s a SSAT sample question to help you practice the type of percent problem you may find on the quantitative section of the Middle Level SSAT.
What are Percentages?
Percent (%) means hundredths or number out of 100, so that 40/100 = 40 percent, and 3 is 75 percent of 4 (because 3/4 = 75/100 = 75 percent).
SSAT Sample Question for Percentage Problems
About 55.2% of the salt in sea water is chloride and 30.4% is sodium. What percent is neither chloride nor sodium?
55.2 + 30.4 = 85.6 100% − 85.6% = 14.4%
