### Kisha's percent scribe

This looks confusing, but its simple. Divide 35 by 10. Divide 100 by 10. Then multiply 3.50 by 2, and multiply 10 by 2. Then subtract 35 by 7.50, which equals \$28.00. Then subtract 100 by 20, and that equals 80%

The percent is out of 100. And GSP is 5% and PST is 6%. So 5%+6%=11% So adding the taxes to the total. 100%+11%=111%

Each full grid represents 100 percent.

Hey Kisha !,

Good job ! Your scribe was very clear and I understood them . And I see that you showed the 31.08 in a hundred grid. But like you under the ( 100 ) in the square you should put 28. and beside the 11 in the square you should put 3.08 . So they know that the 28 is the 100% and the 3.08 is the 11 %. But yea great job kisha !

Oh yea, also I forgot to comment on your video so yea. Great job on the video, but there was just one mistake when you were doing the 1 1/4 % of 60. and you said that 0.3 divided by 2 you said the answer was 0.75 but the answer is actually 0.15 . But yea it's just a minor mistake . so , good job !

Good job kisha on both video and blog. First of all , your blog like what you said was simple but yes i understood it . Your explanation along with the ratio really worked out . I liked the way you explained the second question because not only you used a ratio table which is a typical way of solving a percent but you also showed a way of using girds which is supposedly easier to use . Your video was also well done, but like what elijah said you made calculation mistakes but it was still ok , because i get where you were going at .
