Suzie's Final Percent Post

1. Percent: Means out of 100. It is another name for hundredths. eg. 65%= 65 out of 100, 65/100 or 0.65.

Fractional Percent: A
percent that includes a portion of a percent. eg. 7 3/8 or 4.5%.

Fractions, decimals and percents can be used to represent numbers in many different situations. Percents can be written as fractions and decimals. eg. 1/2= 0.5%. 150%= 150/100, 1.5 or 1 1/2.

You can use mental math strategies like halving, doubling and dividing to find the % of some numbers. 12 1/2% of 50= 1.125 x 50= 6.25.

Percents can also be combined by adding to solve problems. 5%+7%=12%

  1. Great post Suzie, Your written post was very neat and organized. Next time you should avoid too much colors because it's a little distacting.

  2. Also it would've been easier to put a word then add the link to that.

  3. Great job Suzie. Your post was really colorful and neat. Next time make your website into a link, into a word. Other than that, great job.
