### Krystinas scribe post

This is my scribe post for this afternoon. What we did was Mr. Harbeck handed us some papers and it has questions about percents. so if you didnt get them all im going to repeat the first 6 because stephanie is going to do the other 6. so here they are

Question 1 ;
How much is 35% of 90 ?
100 / 100 = 1%
90 / 100 = 0.9
35 x 0.9 = 31.5
35 over 10 = 31.5 over 90

Question 2 ;
What percent of 50 is 42 ?
42 over 56 equals 75% over 100

42 of 56 is 75%

Question 3 ;
16 is 40% of what # ?

40 / 40 = 1%
16 / 40 = 0.4
0.4 x 100 = 40
40 over 100 = 16 over 40

Question 4 ;
Find 75% of 60

100 / 2 = 50
50 / 2 = 25
30 / 2 = 15
soo ...

50 + 25 = 75
30 + 15 = 45
75 = 45

Question 5 ;
80% of what number is 72?

80 / 80 = 1%

72 / 80 = 0.9

0.9 x 100 = 90
90 over 100 = 72 over 90

Question 6 ;
48 is what percent of 40 ?

100 / 100 = 1%
40 / 48 = 0.83 x 100 = 83.3

The next scribe will be ... STEPHANIE CALLAHAN !!

because she has to do the other 6 . then she will pick someone else .
