### Bruno's Growing Post

Question 1. What is a good definition of a percent?.You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition.
Question 2. How are 3\5, 3:2,60% and 0.6 all the same ?
How 3\5 3:2 60% 0.6 are the same is they have the same answers for example 3\5 equals to 60 % if u divide the numerator by the denominator-0.6 and x it by 100 equals 60% and 3:2 is the same just have to convert it to a fraction then decimal then percentage.

Question 3. Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80.

Question 4.
http://linden8z.blogspot.com/. Theres a post called the real deal about percentages and hes scribe name is Chuck Norris.I like his post because theres some stuff we did in class and some stuff i never knew like percentage means
"per hundred", literally.He was also talking about reducing. like we did.He did alot of explaining and he put in food pictures like how much percent does that pizza have and other funny pictures so that why i choose the guys scribe link.

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.
Well this question can be true or false cause it all depends of the total number of students for example if Ms.Stanzi's had 200 students and Ms. Lowrey's had a 100 students then 50 % of 200 is higher than 55 % of a 100. How ever if both have the same amount of students then its is false.

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?
b) What is 120% of 30?
Well the this question is trying to tell u it might be easy when u have a grid and these are reviews that we did in math class so you should know how to do it.
a:40\40=1 16\40=0.4 0.4x100=40%
b:0.30x120=36%

Now i am done my growing post i hope your viewers like it
