Mr Fedley Is Forcing Us To Write A Percentage Blog Post

A percentage is a number expressed as a fraction of 100. Ex. 80/100 = 80% 

How a percentage works.                                                 100 cubes = 1 (100%)     15 shaded = 15%

It also works as…

denominator/numerator x 100

(/ divided by, x is multiply. (Only for above.) )

1.5 does not equal to 15 percent. It is because 1 equals to 100%, so it is equal to 150%.

10 out of 200 is not 10%. 200 is 100% for this, so 10 is 5%.

I have 20 pieces of chocolate. I gave 2 to my friends. How much percent did I give?

First, I make the number to fraction. 2/20. I can simplify it to 1/100, which also equals to 10/100. A percent is based on 100, so I can say that I gave 10%.
