What are percentage word problems in primary school maths?

Percentage word problems in primary school maths are math problems that involve finding a part of a whole, where the part is represented as a percentage of the whole. These problems help children understand and apply the concept of percentages in real-world situations.

Example: What is 25% of 40?
