  • A maths challenge to work out fractions and percentage calculations based on fans at a football match. When fans go to watch a football match the home and away fans are separated. At Fulham Football Club the total number of fans expected is 20,000. One tenth of the fans are expected to be away fans while nine tenths will be home fans. To work out just how many seats will be needed for each section of the grounds, fractions and percentage calculations are needed. Working out 10% of 20,000 and 90% of 20,000 are demonstrated.
