**Percent**means out of 100, and can be expressed as decimals or fractions. Also, it is another name for hundredths.

**4.1 Representing Percents:**

One fully shaded in grid equals to 100%. If you want to show a percent larger than 100%, shade in more than one grid. To represent a percent less than 1%, colour in part of one square. Shade in squares to represent the whole number, and shade in part of a square to show the fraction.

**4.2 Fractions, Decimals, & Percents:**

Percents can be written as decimals and fractions.

For example,

**25% = 0.25 = 25/100 or 1/4**

**4.3 Percent of a number:**

To find the percents of some numbers, you can use mental math strategies such as halving, doubling, or dividing by ten.

Write the percent as a decimal then multiply by the number to calculate the percent.

For example,

**350% of 10 = 3.50 x 10 = 35**

**4.4 Combining Percents:**

Percents can be combined by adding to solve percents.

Eg. 5% + 7% = 12%

To calculate the increase in a number you can:

Add combined percent to the original number.

12% of 100 = 0.12 × 100 = 12

100 + 12 = 11

Multiply the original number by a single percent greater than 100.

**112% of 100 = 1.12 × 100 = 112**

Percents of percents can be used to determine amounts that result from consecutive percent increases or decreases.

**My Percent Review Video**

For this unit, I did one percent scribe post.

Here is a link on percentages.

GREAT JOB MARIE! Your scribe is very neat and well organized. You used colors to make each heading stand-out. Also, you added in examples, a link, and I really like your video. Keep up the good work
