### Ammorn's Scribepost for January 13, 2010

Question 3
Shindi commented to a friend that "some percents would be easier to show if we shaded the parts that were not included in the percent." Explain what she means. Which percents are easier to show using Shindi's Method? Why?
I think that Shindi means that it would be easier because then you wouldn't have to colour in that much. The percents that are easier to show Shindi's method are the percents that are over 50% because then all you have to colour are the other squares which is less than the percent.

Question 7
Represent the percent in each statement on a grid.
a) Attendance at the fall fair increased by 3.2% this year.
b) The average mass of a Singapura cat is about 0.13% of the mass of a Siberian tiger.
c) The length of the Yukon River is about 230% of the length of the Frasier River.
I still have to upload the pictures.

Question 10
Why might a scientist studying water pollution work with percents less than one?
A scientist might work with percents less than one because he might need to compare the measurement of something with a size less than 1%.

Question 15
Show how hundred grid(s) could be used to represent a very small percent, such as 0.000 0125%.
I still have to upload the pictures ..
