What is a good definition of a percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in you definition. (Suggestion gliffy is an excellent tool for adding detail to your definition.)

A percent is a number that you get out of a whole by dividing by 100. Example, if you got 18 out of 20 on a test that be 90% by dividing 18 by 20 you would get 90

Question # 2

How are three fifths (3/5), 3:2, 60%, and 0.6 all the same time? Use pictures and words to show your answer.

Decimal

0.6 = 0.6 * 100 = 60%

60/100 = 3/5

100 – 60 = 60:40 or 3:2Ratio

3:2 = N-N = 3/5

3/5

3/5 * 100 = 60%

60% = say it, write it, 60/100 or 3/5

60 /100 = 0.6

100 – 60 = 60:40 or 3:2

fraction

3/5 = 3/5 * 100 = 60%

3/5 = 0.6

3 – 5 = 3:2

**Question # 3**

Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80. (Bubbleshare is an excellent tool to animate the many different ways of finding this answer.)

frist way

80/100 = 0.8

0.8 = 1%

35 * 0.8 = 28

second way

80 / 10 = 8

8 = 10%

8 + 8+ 8+4 =28

10 + 10 +10 +5 = 35

28 = 35%

80/2 = 40

40 = 50%

40 /2 = 20

20 =25%

0.1/80 =8

8=10%

**Question # 4**

Find a link to blogs that deal with percentages. Leave a comment behind and add the link with a review (what the post was talking about …**yes you have to read the post** and why others should read the post) hint in side the side bar there are link to other schools.

Ms. Stanzi said that a greater number of her students met their reading goal. Could Ms Stanzi be correct? Why or Why not.**

**Question # 6**

*Use a hundred grids (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 /40 * 100 =40%

B) What is 120% of 30?

120% of 100 is 120120/100=1.230 x 1.2=36120/100 = 36/30

Overall Comment for the Growing Post: You did very well in answering your questions, but you mostly lost a great amount of marks by not including pictures and using another application from Studentblogwikitools. So when you have free time, you should put in pictures to get better marks.
