It is a percentage q which tests whether the person doing it understands that a percentage of a quantity, say 15% being taken off leaves a quantity, in this case 85% and 15% of the bit left is not the same as 15% of the original quantity.

Learn how to use decimal multiplication to find a percentage.

No worries! I’m not sure where you can find questions exactly like this but you could try searching for GCSE percentage questions and some might come up (I’m assuming your at GCSE level?)

Most exam boards have a question bank, I know WJEC do, you are able to search for keywords e.g percentages and past paper questions of that topic are shown.
