### rommels 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.)

A percent is equal to a fraction out of a 100. It can be converted to a fraction, decimal, or ratio 12/30 = 40/100

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 the same when it is converted
-the fraction is the same as a ratio
-decimal is equivalent to the fraction

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).

-80\100=0.8x35=28
-80/100 x 4 = 28/80
-80/100= 0.8

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!
