### Emily's Percent Scribe Post

(Textbook questions 1,5,9,15 on pgs.128 and 129.)
Question 1:
Use hundred grids and words to describe the similarities and differences between a percent less than 1%, a percent between 1% and 100%, and a percent greater than 100%.
Differences: They all have different values.
ex. 1/2% is not just a fraction of 100% but a fraction of 1%.

Similarities: They all represents hundredths.

ex. 50% is less than 100% but 125% is more than 100% but they are both hundredths.
Question 5:

What percent is represented by each diagram if a completely shaded grid represents 100%?
a= 3/8%
b=125 1/2%
c=282%
Question 9:

Give two examples where a percent greater than 100% might be found in everyday life.
