Meldee's Scribe Post

Sorry this is late, I just came from church.

Today we did some more questions on comparing percentages to fractions and stuff like that using the grids and our calculators.

We marked the 10 questions we did yesterday. If you weren't at school here they are. (" means the same as above. I'm just to lazy to keep typing "what is")

1) What is 60% of 70?
2) " " 32% of 50?
3) " " 40% of 123?
4) " " 3% of 560?
5) " " 19% of 144?
6) " " 75% of 450?
7) " " 54% of 80?
8) " " 63% of 110?
9) " " 15% of 900?
10) " " 91% of 12?

Here are the answers I got. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
Part 1
1) 70/100= 0.7*60=42

Part 2
1)60/100=42/70

Part 3
1)60 over 100=42 over 70

Part 1
2)50/100=0.5*32=16

Part 2
2)32/100=16/50

Part 3
2)32 over 100=16 over 50

Part 1
3)123/100=1.23*40=49.2

Part 2
3)40/100=49.2/123

Part 3
3) 32 over 100=49.2 over 123

Part 1
4)560/100=5.6*3=16.8

Part 2
4)3/100=16.8/560

Part 3
4)3 over 100= 16.8 over 560

Part 1
5)144/100=1.44*19=27.36

Part 2
5)19/100=27.36/144

Part 3
5)19 over 100=27.36 over 144

Part 1
6)450/100=4.5*75=337.5

Part 2
6)75/100=337.5/450

Part 3
6)75 over 100=377.5 over 450

Part 1
7)80/100=0.8*54=43.2

Part 2
7)54/100=43.2/80

Part 3
7)63 over 100=43.2 over 80

Part 1
8) 110/100*1.1*63=69.3

Part 2
8)63/100=69.3/110

Part 3
8)63 over 100= 69.3 over 100

Part 1
9) 900/100=9*15=135

Part 2
9)15/100=135/900

Part 3
9)15 over 100=135 over 900

Finally the last 3 I got!

Part 1
10)12/100=0.12*91=10.92

Part 2
10)91/100-10.92/12

Part 3
10)91 over 100= 10.92 over 12

Now if your just sitting there either having a dumb face on and going "What?" or just copying this down I suggest you see this.

After that, we had to find out what was 10% of 70 and 150.

After we had to shade in the following percents on our grid papers with our whole number as 100 (in numerical order):
0.25% , 1%, 9%, 78% and 134%

This is what I put:

And that's all we did today.

NEXT SCRIBE IS LAVINIA NAVARRO!
