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 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 an equivalent fraction out of 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 because they are equivalent. They are equivalent because if u turn the ratio into a fraction of 3/5 and then divide 3 by 5 is 0.6 as a decimal. Then multiply the decimal to get 60% thats why3/5, 3:2, 60% and 0.6 are all the same.

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).

1) 35% of 80 80/100=0.8 0.8x35=28 2) 100/1=100 80/1=80 0.8x35=28 3) 28 over 80 = 35 over 100

http://www.hostsrv.com/webmab/app1/MSP/quickmath/02/pageGenerate?site=quickmath&s1=numbers&s2=percentages&s3=basic This is a good website for percentages because it tells u how to use percentages and what is it. It also tells u answers of any questions.
Its easy to use so try it out !

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.

Ms. Stanzi could be right. She could right because she might have more kids than Ms. Lowrey. For example, If Ms Stanzi had 34 kids in her class 17 students(34/2=17) in her class must have met their reading goal.

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?

We're trying to find 40% of some number is 16. In order to answer this question. We first need to find what 1% of this number then multiply the value of 1% by 100.

^ a grid of 10 x 10 grid

b)
What is 120% of 30?

1. What is a good definition of a percent?
You should use words symbols, Pictures and numerical examples in your definition.
A number out of 100 (50% = 50/100)

it is an equivalent out of 100
symbol is %

2.
How are three fifths (3/5), 3:2, 60% and 0.6 all the same? Use pictures and words to show your answer.

Question 3: Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80.
1. 80 divided by 100= 0.8 times 35 = 28
2. 35 divided by 100 =0.35 times 80 = 28

3. 100 divided by 100=1 80 divided by 100=0.8

Question 5: The principal announced that 50% of the children in Ms. Stanzi"s class met their reading goal for the mouth and that 55% of the children in Mrs.Lowrey's class met their reading goal for their reading goal forthe mouth. Ms. Stanzi said that a greater number of her students met their reading goal. Could Ms.Stanzi be correct? Why or Why not?

Maybe yes or no. Because Ms.Stanzi has a lower percent, and Ms. Lowrey has 5 percent higher. But you wouldn't really know because it doesn't say how much students are in each class. And maybe because, there are less students
in Ms Stanzis class thats probably reached a higher goal even though it's a less percentage, and for Ms. Lowreys class there are probably more students thats why.

Question 6: Use a hundred grid (unit square) to illustrate the following question. Once you have explained and illustated what the question means solve it.

a) 16 is 40% of what number?

b) 120 divide 100= 1.2 x 30= 36

Question 1 -- What is a good definition of percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in 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.
They are the same because ...
3 / 5 = 0.6
so 0.6 is the decimal
Then ...
0.6 * 100= 60% which is the percent.
And the ratio is the same because 3 is the part and 5 is the whole. Then you have to find the other part. So then you subtract 5 by 3 and you get 3:2.
They're the same because they are equivalent.

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).
35% (80) = ?
35/100 (80) = ?
35 (80) = 100?
2800 = 100?
The answer is 28% because if you cross out the two zero's in 2800 you have 28. Then you cross out the other 2 zeroes in 100. Then you devide 28 by 1 which is 28% so thats the answer.

There are more ways...

This site shows stuff on how to find percentages. You can also learn alot of other ways to learn math on this web site.

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.

Maybe yes or no. Because Ms.Stanzi has a lower percent, and Ms.Lowrey has 5 percent higher. But you wouldnt really know because it doesnt say how much students are in each class. And maybe because, there are less students in Ms.Stanzi's class that probably reached a higher goal even though it's a less percentage. And for Ms.Lowrey's class there are probably more students thats why.
(i dont really know?? but i tried my best.)

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?
Now you found the fraction that equals 40%. I found 16

b) What is 120% of 30?

i tried my best. sorry if this is isn't good enough. i did it late. but i just tried. =)

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.) Percent: A number out of 100 (35% = 35/100)

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.

3:2 is the same because if you convert the ratio it would be 3/5 (3+2=5 ' 3/5' 60% is the same as if you convert it to a fraction it would be 60/100 then you simplify it (60 divided by 20 and 100 divided by 20 and you would get 3/5) 0.6 is the same as 3/5 because if you multiply 0.6 times 10 you would get 60 then use the same steps as the one above in brackets

Ms Stanzi said that a greater number of her students met their reading goal. Could Ms Stanzi be correct? Why or Why not.

Ms. Stanzi cannot be correct because even though Ms. Lowery has less student her percentage of the class is more greater than Ms. Stanzi's class.Example:Say that Ms. Stanzi had 40 students and Ms Lowery had 30.Ms. Stanzi1) 40=1002) 40/2=203) 20=50% (this means that 20 student me there reading goal)Ms Lowery1) 30=1002) 30/2 =153) 30/2.5=124) 20+12=32 (that means 32 kids met there goal)

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?

40%of 100 is 4040/100=0.416x0.4=4040/100=16/40I got this answer by dividing 40 by 100 that gives me 0.4, and then you multiply the decimal by the part that gives you 40% of 16.

b) What is 120% of 30?

120% of 100 is 120120/100=1.230 x 1.2=36120/100 = 36/30I got this answer by finding out what 120%of 100 is and it is 100, and then I divided 120by 100which gives me 1.2.Then you multiply by the whole which is 30 by 1.2 and that gives you 30 out of 36

Question #1:
What is a good definition of percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in 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 divide these two numbers 3 and 5, the outcome will be o.6 = 3/5=0.6

Divide 3 into 5, then times it by 100, you should get 60% = 3/5 = 0.6 x 100 = 60%

3/5 and 3:2 are exactly the the same thing. The number 3 (numerator) is the first part, then subtract the demoninator
which is 5 into 3 (numerator) (5-3=2) so you can get the second part. So 3/5 becomes 3:5.

Question #3:

Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80.

1.) 80/100=0.8 or 1%

2.) 80/100 = 0.8/1%x35 = 28

Ms Stanzi said that a greater number of her students met their reading goal. Could Ms Stanzi be correct? Why or Why not.

Ms. Stanzi is correct. She is correct because she has more kids than Ms. Lowrey. Ms. Stanzi had 40 kids and Ms. Lowrey had 25 kids, Ms. Stanzi would have 20 children that have met their reading goal of the month because 40 divided by 2 equals 20 or 50%. Ms. Lowrey would have 14 or 15 children that had met their reading goal because 39 divided by 100 is 0.39 and multiply is by 100 would give you 13.75. Ms. Stanzi can be correct.

I comented on Click! but they have to accept it first. Their post that I read talked about how they used money to explain percents. They did a really good job on their explanations!

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.

Ms.Stanzi could have more children in her class than Ms.Lowery. So
Ms. Stanzi could be correct. She could be correct because she might have more kids than Ms. Lowrey. If Ms. Stanzi had 36 kids in her class and Ms. Lowrey had 20 kids in her class, Ms. Stanzi would have 13 children that have met their reading goal of the month because 36 divided by 2 equals 13 or 50%. Ms. Lowrey would have 10 children that had met their reading goal because 20 divided by 2 is 10. Ms. Stanzi could be correct.

Ms. Stanzi and Ms. Lowery could have the same number of children in their classes. Then Ms. Stanzi could be Wrong. For an example they could both have 40 kids in their classes. Then Ms. Stanzi would have 20 kids in her class who met their goal. Ms. Lowery would have about 21 22 23 kids who met their goal.

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?

Formula:

Take 16(since it is worth 40%) and put it over the percentage(40%) to get a fraction. 16 over 40. Then divide the numerator by the denominator to get a decimal(0.4). Multiply the decimal(0.4) by 100 to get the total. 0.4 x 100 = 40(move the decimal to the left 2 times since there are two 0's in 100). Now to check it. If your not sure how to watch the bubble share I created.

BubbleShare

b) What is 120% of 30?
Formula:
Divide 30 by 100 = 0.3( Just move the decimal 2 places to the left since there are 2 0's in 100)
0.3 = 1% (multiply 1%(0.3) by your other % which is 120%)
0.3 x 120 = 36
120% of 30 = 36

I did my self assesment(still waiting on two others to asses my work). I marked Thyrza May's work it was done super well.Click 8-41 on here then see here growing post. I also marked Rainer's work who did an awesome job. Click 8-73 Math Blog (2006). Both of these student did an amazing job. If you need help doing your growing post go and check these two out. (but don't copy).

### Jorel'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

Question 2

How are three fifths (3/5), 3: 2, 60% and 0. 6 all the same ? Use pictures a nd words to sho w your answer.

if you all convert them all to decimal, you will all see that they are equivalents, they are all 0.6

if you divide 60 by 100 you'll get 0.6

60% / 100 + 0.6

add 3and 2 together, that's the denominator. the numerator is 3

3:2= 3/5=0.6

divide 3 and 5 and you'll get 0.6
3/5=0.6

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) 80/100=0.8 or 1% x 35 = 28

c) 80/4=20 or 25% 80/10=8 or 10%

20+8=28 or 35%

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 blog http://linden8m.blogspot.com/ and its awesome.

you can learned how to convert percent into fraction and decimal if you still don't know

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.

the answer of is defend on the number of Ms. Stanzi's students compare to the number of the

students in Ms. Lowrey's class.

because for example if Ms. Stanzi have 200 students and Ms. Lowrey only have 100, Ms. Stanzi

would have more students who mer their reading goal.

Stanzi= 200 / 2 =100 or 50% 100 students met their reading goal in here

Lowrey= 100 / 100 = 1 x 55 = 55 or 55% 55 students met their reading goal in here

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?

40% x 2 = 80%+20%=100% 40% = 16 / 2 = 8 or 20%

16 x 2 = 32 + 8 = 40 or 100%

b) What is 120% of 30?

0.3 x 20 = 6
100% = 30
20% = 6
100% +20% = 120%
30 + 6 = 36 or 120%

### Nicole's Percentage Growing Post

1.What is a good definition of percent?You should use symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition.
click on the picture
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=0.6(I divide 3 to 5 to be able to get 0.6).

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

3:5
=part and whole
=3:2(because 3 plus 2 = 5 which is the whole).
