__Percent means...__- A percent is an equivalent fraction out of 100

- 100%- all, whole, everything, 40/40, 100/100
- 10%- 10/100
- 50%- half, part/whole
- 25%- quarter, 25/100
- 1%- out of 100, 1/100

- % = /100
- 205/100 is an improper fraction or top heavy
- The reason why 100 is used is because it is an easy number to work with
- In french, the word percent is split into two words, "per" being "out of" and "cent" being "100"

__Representing Percents on a Grid:__**A) 180%**

**B) 0.6%**

**C) 12 3/8**

__Converting Percents:____A ratio statement out of 1__

__Fraction - Decimal - Percent__- 3/4: 3/4= 0.075/1
**(0.075/1 x 100)**= 7.5/100 or 7.5%

__Decimal - Percent - Fraction__- 0.0064/1 = 0.64/100 or 64% 0.0064/10 000 = 64/10000
**(Use place holder - Simplify)**

32//5000 -> 16/2500 -> 8/1250 -> 4/625

__Percents - Decimal - Fraction__- 750%/100
**(/100)**= 7.5/1 7 5/10 or 7 1/2

*PERCENT OF A NUMBER:*- Percent of a number is the next part of this exercise. Show how you could solve the following using mental math and calculator.

20% of 60

20 ÷ 100 = 0.2

0.2 x 60 = 12

20% of 60 = 12

0.1% of 40

0.1 ÷ 100 = 0.001

0.001 x 40 = 0.04

0.1% of 60 = 0.04

250% of 400

250 ÷ 100 = 2.5

2.5 x 400 = 1000

250% of 400 = 1000

*COMBINING PERCENTS:*- Combining Percents is the last part of this post. You need to explain Discount, Sale Price and Total Price with taxes. I also need you to explain what is a better deal 50% off or 25% off of an already reduced price of 25%. This can be done using the following questions,

- How to find the
Take the regular price and subtract it by the discount.*SALE PRICE:*

-Sale Price: What you pay

- How to find the
*DISCOUNT:*Take the percent of the discount and divide it by 100 and then multiply it by the regular price. - Total Price Including Taxes: If the tax is 13%, you need to add 13% to the sale price which is 100%.

13+100=113(Total price+Taxes)

113÷100=1.13

1.3 x 147.99 = 192.387 or 192.39

Add 13 and 100 together which is the tax added to the total price. Then divide 113 by 100 and multiply by the total price(147.99)

-Discount: What you save

25% off of an already reduced price of 25% and 50% off are both good deals because 25% + 25% is the equivalent of 50%

e.g. 25 ÷ 100 = 0.25

0.25 x 250 = 62.5

= 125

25 ÷ 100 = 0.25 250 - 125 = 125

0.25 x 250 = 62.5

0.25 x 250 = 62.5

= 125

25 ÷ 100 = 0.25 250 - 125 = 125

0.25 x 250 = 62.5

50 ÷ 100 = 0.50

0.50 x 250 = 125 = 125

250 - 125 = 125

0.50 x 250 = 125 = 125

250 - 125 = 125
