To determine

To fill: In the blank for the provided statement “in the percentage formula, the__________ represents 100%, or the whole thing. In a sentence, it follows the________.”

Explanation

Base represents the whole thing or whole amount headed by the word “of” and can be calculated by the formula,

Base=PortionRate.

Example: Calculate the base when the new value 12 is decreased by 40%.

Consider that the new value portion or the portion P is 12 and the rate of decrease is 40%,

As the rate of change is a decrease, so subtract that change from 100% so as to compute the rate of change R,

R=100%40%<
