### Shera's Scribe - Textbook pages 135-137 (Questions 1, 3, 11)

1. Kaitlyn and Jordan are converting 0.003 to a percent.
Who is correct? Show how you know.

Kaitlyn:
0.003 = 3%

Jordan:
0.003 = 0.3%

- Jordan is right, because to convert a decimal to a percent, you multiply it by 100.
0.003 x 100 = 0.3%

3. Team mates Mark and Jonas are discussing the outcome of a game. Mark says their team scored 500% as many goals as the other team and Jonas says they scored five times as many goals as the other team. Can they both be correct? Explain how you know.

- Yes, they can both be correct because 100% of the other team's goals multiplied 5 times is 500%.

11. Express the shaded portion of each diagram as a fraction, a decimal, and a percent.

a) Fraction - 17/25
Decimal - 0.68
Percent - 68 %

b) Fraction - 9/24
Decimal - 0.375
Percent - 37.5 %

1. Good job on your scribe post, Shera. I liked how everything was organized. I suggest that you put colour in the font so it can stand out more, and put a video up , so people can understand.
Here are some videos that you could use:

2. Great Post. Thanks for Scribing.

3. Great Job Shera I liked how you made great and clear explanations to your post. I liked how you bolded words and important words, but maybe add colour to make your post more exciting for people to see because you should let people know that "hey I want to see this post!" You could of added some videos and links to help us understand. Overall great job! Keep it up!
