4-132.

The yearbook staff at Jefferson Middle School has been busy taking pictures. Of the $574$ pictures the staff members have taken, only $246$ of the pictures will make it into the yearbook. Approximately what portion of the pictures that were taken will make it into the yearbook? Write this portion as a decimal and as a percent. Show your work.

$246$ is a little less than half of $574$. Can you write a fraction over $100$ which is equal to a little less than half?
$\frac{246}{574}\;=\;\frac{?}{100}$

Now that you have a fraction to work with, can you change it to a decimal and percent? Remember to show your work!

The decimal of this portion is about $0.43$. Can you find the percent?
