### Jesse Percentage Growing Post

Question 1)
What is a good definition of Percent?
One is It is a equivalent number out of 100.
Two is It is part of a whole
Three is The symbol of a fraction is %
2.)How are three fifths(3/5), 3:2, 60% all the same?
3/5 , 3:2, 60%, and 0.6 are the same because they are all equivalent

0.6 x 100= 60% that is a picture

3/5 = 0.6 How? divide the Numerator by the denominator
3.) Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80?

one way is... 35 divided by 100= 0.35

0.8 x 80= 28

The second way is... 80 divided by 100= 0.8

0.8 x 35= 2

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's class has 50% of children who seen their ready goal. 50% is half of a 100%.

Ms. Lowrey's class has a 55% of children that have seen their reading goal for the month. 55% is not half of 100%. What i did was i divided 55 by 2 and it equaled to 27.5 but i think Ms. Stanzi's guess was right.

50% out of 100

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