### pAoLa's PeRcEnTaGe GroWinG PoSt

1.what is a good definition of percent?you should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition.

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 the same because when you convert them into percents there are all equal to 60%

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

BubbleShare

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 that they met their reading goal for the month because ms. Lowrey have lesser student than ms. Stanzi.you say ms.Stanzi have 60 students in her class(60/2=30)and ms.Lowrey's class have 30 students(30/2=15).still Ms. stanzi reach the reading goal for the month.

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?

there are 40 shaded square in a grid and it is worth 16.now, you are missing the unit square of the whole square.to find out what's the unit square of the grid you need to do this.

16/40=0.4

0.4(1%)x100=40

b) What is 120% of 30?

since 120 is greater than 100 you need to have 2 grids

each of 1 grid is worth 30

30/100=0.3

0.3x120=36

in 120% there are 36.
