In Math my partner Finn and I have been learning about percentages. We have learnt alot of things about percentages since we started. We have used other percentage skills to work out harder sums and using division to also help us and multiplucation to help me. We have figured out 10%, 20%, 25%, 63%, 70%. 38% and many more percentages. Our task was to complete a catlogue and I completed mine and it looks really good. We have shown working out on out page and shown what percent was taken off and how much was it. Here are some pictures.
