How are three fifths (3/5), 3:2, 60% and 0.6 all the same? Use pictures and words to show your answer.
Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80.
3/5 = 3 divided by 5 = 0.6 then you multiply it by 100 so the anwser is 60%
3:2 = 3/5 = 3 then you divided it by 5 = 0.6 then you multiply by 100 = 60%
60% = 60% 0.6 multiply 100 = 60%
they are all equivilant because when 3:2 then you add 3 + 2 = 5 then you take the 3 that you were going to add then you take the anwser 5 then you have 3/5.
now you have 3/5 so you divide them example : ( 3 divided by 5 = 0.6 ) then you have the anwser
Here we on to percentages we have the anwser 0.6 you multiply by 100 example : ( 0.6 x 100 = 60% )
so that means they are all equivilant
heres and example

my comment hasen't been accepted yet because i just wrote a comment like 2 mins ago so yeah.
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.
i think ms stanzi can be correct because she has 50% of more students but ms lowrey has more students than ms stanzi ms lowery has 55% of more students. the question didnt really metion how many students were in the class so im not that sure about it.
my work : 20 50%= 10 15 55%= 8
