### Sydney's Scribe Post December 6th 2006

Today in class we went over yesterdays homework which was.....

400 and 162

we had to figure out the percents out of 400 and 162.

The numbers were :

1%= 400\100*1=4
5%= 400\100*5= 20
10%
30%
65%
75%

You divide 400 by 100, then multiply the asnwer by the percent.

Mr.H gave us a question...

What does 40% mean?
we came up with....-40/100
-2/5 is 40%
-part of a whole
and some more ...

then he told us to write down
When you are finding out a % you are just making happy numbers out of 100 is easier to compare then out of 62.5 :)!

then we did the following ....

------ ------
100 400

1% 1/100 ---------> 4/400
5% 5/100 --------> 20/400
10% 10/100 -------> 40/400
30% 30/100 ------> 120/400
65% 65/100 ------->160/400
75% 75/100 ------->220/400

Then he said " what is 45% of 60?"

this is how we did it ..

60\100-0.6*45=27
35% 45\100*60=27

part - 45% ?
-------- = -----
whole - 100 60 <--- 60\100*45
0.6
-------
1
45 45 0.45
----- = ----- ------ = ------ <---- decimal
100 60 100 1

Another question was 32% of 87?
(32 is bad) (87 is good)

32% ?
----- = -----
100 87
Y
87\100=0.87

Our homework questions were what is...

45% of 60?

21% of 78?

35% of 18?

91% of 210?

55% of 370?

12% of 125?

70% of 256?

and that's what we did in class , i hope you like it :)

MYRH-RYNN WILL BE THE NEXT SCRIBE FOR DECEMBER 7th :)

( some of the things that i did with fractions and stuff didnt really work out , so if you just move then to the side a bit when you are reading this then it will make sense ... sorry:( )

I agree with your classmates. Pictures make the post better. Your use of pink font is hard to see.
