### michael alota's scribe

Today in class we first started out by putting some papers in our portfolio. When we were finished, we reviewed percents. Like what percentage means and we also got some questions. Here are the questions we got:

1) What is 40% of 92
answer: 92 divided by 100 = 0.92x40=36.8
2) what % of 60 is 24?
answer: 60 divided by 100 = 0.60
24x100 divided by 60 = 40
40%
3) 35 is what % of 42?

answer: 35 divided by 42 - 0.833 x 100 = 83.3

Also during class we got a yellow sheet that was handed out. The whole class did question one which is called Visual but not before Mr. Harbeck explained to us.

The question looked like this:
