#### Sample of PZ Cussons Job Test Past Questions and Answers

- Conversions

(i). Changing Decimals to Percents

To change decimals to percents: - Move the decimal point two places to the right.
- Insert a percent sign.

.75 = 75% .05 = 5%

(ii). Changing Percents to Decimals

To change percents to decimals: - Eliminate the percent sign.
- Move the decimal point two places to the left. (Sometimes adding zeros will be

necessary.)

75% = .75 5% = .05

23% = .23 .2% = .002

(iii). Changing Fractions to Percents

To change a fraction to a percent: - Multiply by 100.
- Insert a percent sign.

1⁄2 = (1⁄2) × 100 = 100⁄2 = 50%

2⁄5 = (2⁄5) × 100 = 200⁄5 = 40%

(iv). Changing Percents to Fractions

To change percents to fractions:

- Divide the percent by 100.
- Eliminate the percent sign.
- Reduce if necessary.

60% = 60⁄100 = 3⁄5 13% = 13⁄100

(v). Changing Fractions to Decimals

To change a fraction to a decimal, simply do what the operation says. In other words,

13⁄20 means 13 divided by 20. So do just that (insert decimal points and zeros

accordingly):

.65 .625

20 √ 13.00 = .65 8 √5.00 = .625

Changing Decimals to Fractions

To change a decimal to a fraction: - Move the decimal point two places to the right.
- Put that number over 100.
- Reduce if necessary.

.65 = 65⁄100 = 13⁄20

.05 = 5⁄100 = 1⁄20

.75 = 75⁄100 = 3⁄4

Finding Percent of a Number

To determine percent of a number, change the percent to a fraction or decimal

(whichever is easier for you) and multiply. Remember, the word “of” means multiply.

What is 20% of 80?

(20⁄100) × 80 = 1600⁄100 = 16 or .20 × 80 = 16.00 = 16

What is 12% of 50?

(12⁄100) × 50 = 600⁄100 = 6 or .12 × 50 = 6.00 = 6

What is 1⁄2% of 18?

½ /100 × 18 = (1/200) × 18 = 18/200 = 9/100 or .005 × 18 = .09

Other Applications of Percent

Turn the question word-for-word into an equation. For “what” substitute the letter x;

for “is” substitute an equal sign; for “of” substitute a multiplication sign.

Change percents to decimals or fractions, whichever you find easier. Then solve the

equation.

For example;

18 is what percent of 90?

18 = x (90)

18/90 = x

1/5 = x

20% = x

Percentage Increase or Decrease

To find the percentage change (increase or decrease), use this formula:

Change/ Starting point × 100 = Percentage change

For example:

What is the percentage decrease of a $500 item on sale for $400?

Change: 500 − 400 = 100

Change/ Starting point × 100 = 100 × 100 = 5

500

1 × 100 = 20% decrease

What is the percentage increase of Jon’s salary if it went from $150 a month to

$200 a month?

Change: 200 − 150 = 50

Change/Starting point × 100 = 50 / 150 × 100 = 1/3 × 100

= 331⁄3 % increase

- NUMBER SERIES DRILL

Look at this series: 2, 1, (1/2), (1/4) … What number should come next?

A. (1/3)

B. (1/8)

C. (2/8)

D. (1/16)

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

This is a simple division series; each number is one-half of the previous

number.

In other terms to say, the number is divided by 2 successively to get the next

result.

4/2 = 2

2/2 = 1

1/2 = 1/2

(1/2)/2 = 1/4

(1/4)/2 = 1/8 and so on.
