3-46.

Given the following descriptions of portions, write each portion as a percent. Use a $100\%$ block to help you visualize the portions.

1. $3$ tenths and $6$ hundredths

• $10$ tenths make $100\%$. Think about how you could write $4$ tenths and $6$ hundredths, given that information.

$36\%$

1. $8$ hundredths

• You need $100$ hundredths to make 100%.
How would you write $8$ portions of $100$?

$8\%$

1. $17$ hundredths

• $17$ hundredths can also be written as $1$ tenth and $7$ hundredths.

1. $11$ tenths

• Is $11$ tenths greater or less than $100\%$?
Remember that $10$ tenths is equal to $100\%$.
