If we sell 1000 snickerdoodles on Wednesday and 3000 on Friday how many times more snickerdoodles did we sell on Friday compared to Wednesday? If on Wednesday we sold 1000 snickerdoodles in 8 hours, what was the rate at which we sold them?
Percentage “of” problem If we have 1000 snickerdoodles and 78 of the snickerdoodles have raisins. What percent of the snickerdoodles have raisins?
Practice “than” problem Let’s say we make 150% more snickerdoodles on Monday than we make on Tuesday. If we make 3000 snickerdoodles on Monday, how many snickerdoodles do we make on Tuesday?
Practice “increase / decrease” Problem On Wednesday we sell 1000 snickerdoodles. On Thursday we increase the number of snickerdoodles sold by 11%. How many have we sold on Thursday? From Thursday to Friday we again increase the number sold by 11%. How many do we sell on Friday? What is the overall percentage change from Wednesday to Friday?
