# Estimate what part of the figures is coloured and hence find the per cent which is coloured

**Solution:**

(i)

In this figure, one part out of four parts is coloured.

So the fraction of the coloured part is 1/4.

Convert the fraction into a percentage by multiplying the fraction by 100.

Percentage of coloured part = 1/4 ×100

= 25%

(ii)

In this figure, three parts out of five parts are coloured.

Hence the fraction of coloured parts is 3/5.

Percentage of coloured part = 3/5 ×100

= 60%

(iii)

In this figure, three parts out of eight parts are coloured.

Hence the fraction of coloured parts is 3/8.

Percentage of coloured part = 3 / 8 ×100

= 37.5%
