### marjo's Growing Post

What is a good definition of percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your defintion.

How are three fifths (3/5), 3:2, 60% and o.6 all the same? Use pictures and words to show your answer. - they all equal 60%
-3 divide by 5 = 0.6 x 100 = 60%
-0.6 x 100 = 60%

= 60%

Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80. (bubbleshare is an excellent tool to animate the many different ways of finding these answers)
1.

2.
80 divided by 100 = 0.8 or 1%
0.8 x 35 = 28
28 = 35%

3.
100% = 80, 1%=0.8, 10%=8, 5%=5
8 x 4 = 32 - 4 = 28

•Find a link to blogs that deal with percentages. Leave a comment behind and add the link with a review (What the post was talking about..yes you have to read the post and why others should read the post) Hint in the side bar there are links to other schools. Three of them have done work on percentages!

i chose "Percent "the real deal" i think this post really helped me alot. and i learned what the word percent means.

Comments: You can improve this part by explaining more about what the post you commented from the other school talked about. && you can click the title of that post and use that link, cause it was really hard looking for the one you commented on.
