Percentage increase and decrease test

A handy test or homework sheet. Although the answers use multipliers, the student-facing sheet doesn't mention methods so is suitable for many levels. You choose whether calculators are allowed!

Example question

Find the new values:

a.    Increase 650kg by 15%
b.    Increase 48 minutes by 25%
c.    Decrease 45 by 9%
d.    Increase 300cm by 90%
