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.

I think Ms. Stanzi is correct because half of the students in her class read more then in Ms. Lowrey's.

30 students divided by 60 students =50% fo them read their reading goal

11 students divided by 20 = 55% of them read their reading goal
