### Lenard's 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.)
-To get a percent you divide a # then you times it by 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.
-There all the same because the 3/5, 3:2, 60%, 0.6 there all = to fraction, ratio, percent and decimals.So they are equal to 3 over 5

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).
-1st --------80/100=0.8x35=28

-2nd -------35/100=0.35x80=28

-3rd -------0.35/100=0.0035x0.8=0.0028
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!

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.
-50% of the class in Ms. Sanzi's class
-55% of the class in Ms Lowrey's class
-yes=she could be right because there are more kids in her class

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?16/100=0.16
1%=0.16
0.16x10%=1.6

b) What is 120% of 30?
1.20x30=36 36 is the whole part --36 = 120% of 30

Good bye!
