### Percents

Percent Problem:
Over five years, the circulation of a magazine increased from 25000 copies to 150000 copies. What percent is the new circulation of the circulation from five years ago? What is this percent as a decimal and a fraction?

For this problem, we would want to use the math information given to us:
-5 years of circulation
-25000 copies
-150000 copies

Fraction out of 1oo.

OF means the denominator of the fraction.

Now, to solve this problem, we are going to use proportion.

Fraction: 600/1oo or 1/6
Percent: 600%
Decimal: 600%/100=6

Here's a website I found on percents:

*Remember* Do pages 40-41 in the homework book, also for our class, we have a Social Studies Test tomorrow, so don't forget to study! I hope everyone does well:)

1. Great post Sandra. It looks very neat and you used the colors very well. I also liked how you wrote down to study for the social studies quiz tomorrow and I hope everyone does well too. Next time make you link into a word instead of the whole URL. Other than that, great job.

2. Great post Sandra. Your post is very neat and organized. You can put your own work to show the explanation of the question and hope everyone does well tomorrow.Glenesse is right, you can make your link into a word not the whole URL but other than that, nice job.

3. Great post, Sandra. It was very neat. I liked how you explained your work using a picture. Thanks for reminding us for the homework and the social studies test we're having tomorrow. This helps me alot. Next time, you should make your link into a word. Overall, you did a great job.

4. Good job Sandra! You did an awesome job on explaining your work and you added great pictures! Next time you should leave only one or two spaces between a video and work.

5. Great job Sandra. Your work is neat and I like the way you color the questions. I think your link is nice. Thanks for reminding us to do pages 40-41 in our homework book.

6. Great job Sandra, I liked that your post is very neat and organized. I also liked that you used the right amount of colors for important words.Next time you should fix the link and the bottom is kind of confusing.

7. Nice post Sandra. I really like the picture you used to explain the how to solve the problem. I also liked the site you used, but it would be nice if you, as Glenesse said, made it so the link is a word we can just click and be redirected to the site. Also, you should make it so there isn't too many spaces between your work.

8. Good job, Sandra! I liked the video you posted and thank you for the reminders. Next time give a more clearer explanation. Good job.

9. GOOD JOB SANDRA! Your scribe was pretty neat and organized. I liked the way you added a picture, link, and video. As JB said, you should explain your work clearer by using WORDS and numbers. Other than that, good job and keep it up!
