In Wendsday's class Mr.H gave us a chart of decimals, fractions, ratios, and percents.With those decimals, fractions, ratios, and percents we were asked to place them on a number line in order. To do that you had to convert all of the decimals, percents, fractions, and ratios into either percents, fractions, decimals, or ratios. The easiest one to place in order would be percents.

I am going to convert the decimals, percents, fractions, and ratios shown in the chart above into percents so it makes it possible to put them in order.

50%= 50%

0.7= 0.7 x 100= 77%

17/40= 17 divided by 40 x 100= 42.5%

29/47= 29 divided by 47 x 100 = 61.7%

3/4= 3 diveded by 4 x 100= 75%

9/10 = 9 divided by 10 x 100= 90%

o.484= 0.484 x 100= 48.4%

66:34= 66/100= 66 divided by 100= 0.66 x 100= 66%

2:3= 2/5= 2 divided bye 5= o.4 x 100= 40%

7:5= 7/12= 7 divided by 12= 0.5833333 x 100= 58.3%

0.82= 82 x 100= 82%

80/108= 80 divided by 108= 0.7407407 x 100= 74%

5/6= 5 divided by 6= 0.8333333 x 100= 83.3%

95.8%= 95.8%

17/200= 17 divided by 200= o.085 x 100= 8.5%

77:44= 77/121= 77 divided by 121= 0.6363636 x 100= 63.6

37.5%= 37.5%

0.08= 0.08 x 100= 8%

80:30= 80/110= 80 divided by 110= 0.7272727 x 100= 72.7%

18/92= 18 divided bye 92= o.1956521 x 100= 19.5%

After all of the decimals, ratios, and fractions have been converted into percents they should be put into order.

8%,8.5%,19.5%,37.5%,40%,42.5%,48.4%,50%,58.3%,61.7%,63.6%,66%,72.7%,74%,75%,77%,82%,83.3%,90%,95.8%

The percents can now be placed on a number line. Like the number line shown below.

On the bottom of the number line will be the raw values of the percents above.
