### Jeff's Pecentage Growing Post (Part 2)

Question 5:

The principal announced that 50% of the children in Ms. Stanzi's class met their reading goal for the month and that 55% of the children in Ms Lowrey's class met their reading goal for the month. Ms Stanzi said that a greater number of her students met their reading goal. Could Ms Stanzi be correct? Why or Why not.

Ms. Stanzi cannot be correct because even though Ms. Lowery has less student her percentage of the class is more greater than Ms. Stanzi's class.

Example:

Say that Ms. Stanzi had 30 students and Ms Lowery had 20.

Question 6:

Use a hundred grid (unit square) to illustrate the following questions. Once you have explained and illustrated what the question means solve it.

a) 16 is 40% of what number?

16 is 40% of 0.4 because when you divide 16 and 0.4 that will give you 40%.

b) What is 120% of 30

Jeff, weren't you supposed to just create one post, then go back and edit it? Otherwise, it's fantastic. Really enjoying it.

I think Jeff gets an 8/10 on his growing post because he used pictures other than paint to explain his answers and a lot of them were well done. One thing I think you need to improve on is to explain your answer a little bit more. But otherwise your post is good.
