Final Percent Post

1) This chapter was about decimals, fractions, and percents. We learned how to represent percents in many ways. Such as hundred grids, fractions, and even decimals. After that, it got harder and we learned how to add taxes. Like GST and PST.

You can represent percents by showing it on hundred grids.


Fractions, Decimals and Percents

Percents can be written as fractions and as decimals.
