Scribe post for pages 135-137 Questions (1,3,11)

1. Kaitlyn and Jordan are converting 0.003 to a percent.
Who is correct? Show how you know.
Kaitlyn: Jordan:
0.003 = 3% 0.003 = 0.3%

Jordan is correct he is correct because you have to convert a decimal to a percent. You do that by multiplying by 100.

3. Teammates Mark and Jonas are discussing the outcome of a game.
Mark says their team scored 500% as many goals as the other
team and Jonas says they scored ﬁ ve times as many goals as the
other team. Can they both be correct? Explain how you know.

Yes they can both be correct. They can both be correct because 100% multiplied 5 times equals 500%. So in one each 5 represents 100%.

11. Express the shaded portion of each diagram
as a fraction, a decimal, and a percent.

a) Fraction: 17 I couldn't get a fraction line in the middle so yeah
25
Decimal:0.68
Percent: 68%

b) Fraction: 9
24
Decimal: 0.375
Percent: 37.5%

Here is a video

Here is a worksheet you can practice on

Good job Gurpreet! I like how you explain the questions. In number 11a and b for the fraction you could draw the fractions and take a picture of it or do it in paint. So it will be easier to understand. I like your video but it got cut off at the end of their explanation. The link Is good but then when your done doing the test the problems are just the same every time. Over all good job!!!

Great Job Gurpreet!
I liked how you had everything you did in class on here because I was in Backe math and now I understand what you guys were doing. You could have maybe added some colour to your post to make it more interesting to read!
Otherwise, Good Job!

Hi Gurpreet! Well done on your scribe post. I really liked what you put on your title because you told us what pages it was on and what question number it is. From looking at your post, it was very neat. I think you should add more picture, like how you got you answer on question number one and three. Another way of making you post even better is, changing the font size for the questions (I suggest the bigger one), and font color (Two different color: Questions and answers). Thanks for the video,it was cool.
