Students were introduced to a new skill last Friday just to give them an idea of our focus of study for this week. Finding a Percent of a Whole Number is our skill for the next few days. We reviewed the steps on calculating percentages during class and worked several examples. Here are our procedures:
Step 1: Convert the % to a decimal (use the Dr. Pepper method)
Step 2: Multiply the decimal by the whole number (remember to move your decimal in your answer the proper number of places!)
