### James G's Percentage Growing Post (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?

40/40=1%

40/100=0.4

0.4x100=40

40/100 = 16/40

b) What is 120% of 30?

120/120=1%

120/100=1.2

100=30

1.2x30=36

120/100 = 36/30

### Earl's Growing Post

A percent is a fraction out of one hundred. This is the percent sign %. Mr. H said it means 100 in French. For example 23/100 is 23%.

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

They are all the same because if you change them all into percents they will all be the same thing but in percents. For example if you had 3:2 and 3/5 if you change then 3:2 into a fraction guess what the fraction will be. If you said 3/5 you are right.Then another example is if you take 60% and 0.6 and change the decimal into a percent guess what it is. If you guessed it would be 60% you are right.

3.Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80.

1.35 divided by 35 = 1%

35 divided by 100 = .35

0.35 times 80 = 28/80

2. 100 divided by 100 = 1%

80 divided by100 = 0.8

3.80 divided by 100 = 0.8

So each square is 0.8

4.Find a link to blogs that deal with percentages. Leave a comment behind and add the link with a review

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.

There are more people in Ms. Stanzi's class than Ms. Lowrey's class. So I think she is correct.

A percent is a fraction of 100. The symbol % means 100 in french.

example:55/100 = 55%

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

They are all the same because if you make them all a percent it will be all the same. For example 3:2 and 3/5 are the same because when you convert 3:2 it will be 3/5. 3/3+2=5 then that is 3:2. 60% is the same as o.6 because 0.6 converted into a % is 60 and 60% converted to a decimal is 0.6.

Question 3

Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80.

1. 35/35= 1%

35/100=0.35

0.35/80=28 /100

2. 100/100=1% 80 divided by 100 = 0.8

3. 80/100=0.8

What is a good definition of percent? You should use words, symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition.

A number that is out of 100. An example is 25% or 25-100

Question 2:

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

They are all equivalents. For example if you use the ratio 3:2 you add the numbers together then your answer becomes 5, so you use the 5 as the denominator and the 3 is the numerator. After that you divide the numerator by the denominator and the answer is 0.6. With that you times it by 100 and the answer would be 60%.

Question 3:

Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80.

1) 35/35=1

35/100=0.35

0.35*80=28

2)100/100=1% 80 divided by 100 = 0.8

3)80/100=0.8

### Krystinas scribe post

**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 1**

What is a good definition of percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition.

^^^ click to enlarge

Anwser: Percent means parts per 100

The symbol is % Example: 25% means 25 per 100

**Question 2**

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

**Question 3**

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

*They are all equivalents.*

*Because 3:2 , you add the two numbers together and you get 5 and that is the denominator and the first number of the ratio is the numerator so it's 3.*

*Then i would be 3/5.So both are the same value.*

*Now 60% is the same to all of these because to find a percent you have to divide numberator(3) by the denomenator (5) then you multiply it by 100 and you get 60% (n/d*100=%).*

What is a good definition of percent? You should use words, symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition.

A respresentation that represents part of a whole or 100. It can also be more than 100%

example: 3/4 = 75%. I got this answer by dividing 3 by 4 or N by D multiplied by 100.

Question 2:

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

They are all the same because they are all equal to 3/5.Ratio: You keep the numerator for pt.1 and then subtract the denominator from the numerator to get 3:2Percent: You divide the numerator from the denominator and multiply it by 100.Decimal: You convert the decimal into a fraction and the simplify if you can

Ms. Stanzi: 40/2=20

Ms. Lowrey: 40/1.5=26.66

No, she can't be correct because there is more of an average of students that are meeting their reading goal and the only way Ms. Stanzi could be correct is if a bigger number of kids start improving their reading.

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?

b) What is 120% of 30?

a) 40% of 100 is 40

40/100=0.4

16 x 0.4=40

40/100 = 16/40

I got this answer by first dividing 40 by 100 and that gives me 0.4.So then you multiply the decimal by the part and that gives you 40% of 16.

b) 120% of 100 is 120

120/100=1.2

30 x 1.2=36

120/100 = 36/30

I got this answer by first finding out what 120% of 100 is which is 120. So then I divided 120 by 100 which gives me 1.2. Then you multiply by the whole which is 30 by 1.2, and that gives you 36 out of 30.

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

They are all equivalents. Because 3:2 , you have to add the two numbers together which is 5 and that is the denominator and the first number of the ratio is the numerator which is 3. So in that case it would be 3/5.

So both are equivalent.

Now 0.6 is similar because … 3/5 equals 0.6.

So now those are similar.

Now 60% is similar to all of these because to find a percent is n/d = __ * 100 = %. So in this case it is similar because:

3/5 = 0.6 * 100 = 60%.

**Question 3;**

Show 3 different ways to fine 35% of 80.

There are 100 squares in each:

Show 3 different ways to fine 35% of 80.

100 divided by it gives you 1%. So its 80 divided by 100 which equals 0.8

0.8 is how much one area of a square equals.

**I kind of did mine in a different way.**

(the ones in brackets mean multiply)

**1:**

**35% (80) = ?**

**35/100 (80) =?**

**35(80)= 100?**

**35x80 = 2800**

*28 = 1 %*

**2:**

another way is:

you have to first get this : How many tens are there in 80 ??

so its 8 right?

so on a grid you shade in 10% which is 8.

so that is 10 % already so now what you do is...

35 - 10 = 25

25-10 = 15

15 - 10 = 5

So all those ten equal 8% which equals 10% on a 100 grid square.

So now if all those 10s equal 8 then you add those with a 4

8+8+8+4 = 28

*!!!!*

**3:**

100/100=1 >> so now because the grid is out of 80 you do :

80/80=1 >> now you divide 80 by 100 and that equals :

80/100= 0.8 >> okaay now you get that decimal and multiply that by 35.

0.8x35= 28 >> which equals 28 =)

Ms. Stanzi can be correct because it did not say in the question how many students she has in her class. But that means that Ms. Lowreys class has more students because it says 55% and Ms. Stanzi has 50%.

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 / 4 = 4

because the whole thing is out of 40 then the 4 equals 10 percent or 4 %

So there are 10 groups of 4 because 20 (shaded) and 60 (blank) added together is 100.

So there are 4 groups of ten. So all you have to do it:

10 x 4 = 40 >>> in this case the answer would be 40 !

*b: what is 120% of 30 ?*

2 x 3 = 6 >>> because there are 2 groups of three to = 6 so it is 20 %

100 = 30

20 = 6

now you add that all together

120 = 36 !

**I commented on this great post. This post was very easy to understand and it included some examples about percentages. Such as when you are taking a french test that is out of 50 and there's a bonus question that is worth 5% . If you get that correct and all the other questions then it is possible to get 55/50 which is 110%.****The post also teaches how to simplify fractions and it also teaches that percentage actually means "Per Hundred" and****that percent is over 100 or /100. The post also included terms that are mostly used in percentage such as "of" meaning "multiply". Also with the "/" meaning "divide".You guys should read that post, you'll learn alot and some of the information we already know so it will serve as a review to you guys.****Question 5**

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.

### Marygrace's Growing Post ..

What is a good definition of percent? You should use words, symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition.

One part in a hundred. For example, 62 percent (also written 62%) means 62 parts out of 100.

Question 2:

How are three fifths (3/5), 3:2, 60% and 6.0 all the same? Use pictures and wods to show your answer.

Question 3:

Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80.

Question 4:

Find a link to blogs that deal with percentages. Leave a comment behind and add he link with a review.

I commented here .. >>

https://beta.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=33406999&postID=3554359283139302086

This blog talked about 3 different ways to find the percent.

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 her class's percentage is lower than Ms. Lowery's.

She could also be correct because she could have more students than Ms. Lowery's class.

Let's say Ms. Stanzi's class at 10 students. 10 / 2 = 5 5 = 50%

.. and Ms. Lowery's class only has 6 students ..

6 / 2 = 3 0.5 / 6 = .08 3 + .08 = 3.08

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?

b) What is 120% of 30?

a) **80**

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

16 / 40 is equivalent to 40 / 100 because when you divide both of them, they both are 0.4.

b) **30**

30 / 30 = 1%

120 / 30 = 4

1 square is worth 4.

4 x 120 = 480

30 is equal to 100. To find 120% of 30, you have to divide the percent by 30. 120 divided by 30 equals 4. The 4 is equal to 1%. Then you multiply 4 by 120 to get your answer. (4 x 120 = 480)
