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? Use a complete portions web to show your answer. Show your work.

You need to complete each portion of the portions web shown at right.
Start by representing this as a fraction.

$\frac{246}{574}=\frac{123}{287}$

Next, convert this to a percent.

$\frac{123}{287}\approx \frac{43}{100}=43\%$

Now try writing this as a decimal and in words on your own! Put them all together for a completed portions web.
