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?



my answer:

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.

my answer:

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! :)
