Tips To Remember Some Values
The values of reciprocal percentages (RP) for 6 is exactly half that for 3 (half of 33.33 = 16.66) The RP for 8 is exactly half of 4 (half of 25 = 12.5)
Seven is easy to remember just 7 into 2 (14), followed by 14 into 2 (28) which makes it 14.28
9 is onethird of 3 (33.33 divided by 3 = 11.11)
Please start with the next ten only after becoming absolutely comfortable with the first ten

By now you would have figured out that the difficult ones are the prime numbers. We have already dealt with 7. Now we need to work out 11, 13, 17, 19, 23 and 29.
9 and 11 are interrelated as 1/9 is 11.11 and 1/11 is 9.09
13 is considered unlucky. The way you remember it is through the year 1977,which proved unlucky for Indira Gandhi and Coca Cola.
All even numbers can be worked out by dividing the RP for the number that was their half or quarter by two or four respectively. For example, 12 is half of 6 (half of 16.66 = 8.33)
Workout the rest of the primes and your own unique way to remember them. We cannot emphasize the importance of having the percentages of the 1st 30 reciprocals on your fingertips.
