Obj: To model percents and to write percents using equivalent ratios HWK: p 276-277 1-9 all 15-30 all Vocab: 1) percent

2 ways to change Fraction to Percent (%) 1) Write as an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100 – the new numerator is your %. 2) Divide denominator into numerator, add decimal and 0’s until terminates or repeats. Then change decimal to % by moving decimal right 2 digits.
