kaitlin.L's percent post for Feb. 9

I am doing my percents post on a couple of the questions from my Percents test...

19. Greg's backyard measures 30m by 30m. He wants to build a small tennis court that measures 20m by 15m. what percent of Greg's backyard will be used for the tennis court?

30m x 30m = 900m
15m x 20m = 300m
The percent of Greg's backyard is 33.34% for his tennic court.

16. Is it possible to have two fractions with different denominators and numerators representing the same decimal? explain your answer using examples.

Yes you can have two fractions with different denominators and numerators representing the same decimal.
Example: 4/8 or 5/10 they are both 50% or 0.50

that was my percent post...... COMMENT! :)
