### Fiel's Percentage Growing Post

Question #1: What is a good definition of percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition. (suggestion gliffy 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

If you convert 0.6 to percent, the answer is 60%
0.6 x 100 is 60%

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

a) 35% /100=0.35x80=28

b) 25% of 80 = 80/4=20

c) 10% of 50 = 50/10=5

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!

I found this link http://linden8m.blogspot.com/ and its awesome.
you can learned how to convert a percent to a decimal, decimal to percent and percent to fraction. It is explained very clearly for you to understand how to convert a 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.

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?

You have to divided the 16 to 40 and then when you get the answer you have to multiply it by 100 then the answer ias the representing number.

b) What is 120% of 30?

I only I did is to divided the reprenting number to 100 then the answer will be multiplied on the given pieace of squares. Then the answer is is 36% of 30.
