### Cindy's Pecentage Growing Post

Question 1:
What is a good definition of percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical ex
amples in your definition. (suggestion Giffy is an excellent tool for adding detail to your definition.)

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.

3/5, 3:2, 60%, and 0.6 are the same because when you convert 3/5 in a ratio, percent and they are the same

Ratio 3/5=3:2
Percent 3/5 = 3/5=0.6 0.6x100=60%
Decimal 3/5= 3/5=0.6

Question 3
Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80. (bubble share is an excellent tool to animate the many different ways to finding these answer).

a.) 35% of 80
80/100=0.8
0.8x35=28

b.) 100/1=100
80/1=80
0.8x35=28

c.) 28 over 80 = 35 over 100

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 the side bar there are links to other schools. Three of them have done work on percentages.

People should read this because it deals with percentages.
It tells us how to convert fractions to percents.
It tells us how to get the lowest term a lower fraction

Sorry if i don't have the questions 5 and 6 because i didn't have time to do it.
