Jieram's Final Percent Post

Chapter 4 Understanding Percent

4.1 Representing Percent
-Percent means out of 100
-Another name for hundred
-65 means out of 100 or 65/100 or 0.65

4.2 Fraction, Decimal, Percents
-Fraction, decimals, and percents can be used to represent numbers in various situations
-Percents can be written as fractions and as decimals
Ex. 1/2 = 50% or 0.50

4.3 Percent of a Number
-You can use mental math strategies such as halving, doubling, and dividing by ten to find the percents of some numbers
-To calculate the percents of a number, write the percents as a decimal then multiply by the number
Ex. 12 1/2 of 50 = o.125 x 50
= 6.25%

4.4 Combining Percents
-Percents can be combined by adding to solve problems. 5% + 7% = 12%
-To calculate the increase in a number
-You can add the combined percent amount to the original numbers.


  1. Good post Jieram, It's great you have the key ideas for each chapter. Next time, You should add more color or boldness to some words like title, and also add your percent video.

  2. Good job, Jieram. Oh, and if you want to upload a video, here's how:
    1) Get the embed code for the video and copy it.
    2) Go back to your post and switch to edit html.
    3) Paste the embed code where you want to put it, most likely at the bottom of your page.
    4) Switch back and the video should be there.
    Hope this helped.

  3. Great job Jieram. Your video was really good and well shown on your thinking. Now that Anabelle told you how to upload your video you should change it. Other than that, great job.

  4. Cool. I like how you have all the information, and it's all there, but maybe next time you could add more colour? OR even try to get the video on the post instead of a link? I think it's fine the way it is, but it was a good video. Glad to know that you have everything on there. Great Job, Jieram!
