**1. Quiz about percentage**

**2. Discount**

- Discount = Marked price – Selling price
- Percentage discount = ( Discount / Marked_price) x 100%
- Selling price = (100% – Discount %) x Marked_price

**3. Sales Tax and Income Tax**

- Tax = Tax_rate x Cost
- Income_tax = Tax_rate x Income
- Income: wage (hourly-paid), salary (annual basis)

**4. Compound Discount**

- Each successive discount is based on the price after the previous discount

**5. Points, Line and Planes**

- Point: has position; has no size
- Line: has an infinite number of points; has no width; can be determined by two points; can be straight or curved
- Ray: a part of a line with one endpoint
- Endpoint
- Line segment: a part of a line between two end points; has length
- Plane: a flat surface; has no thickness
- Parallel lines: two lines on the same plane do not intersect (meet or cut)
- Perpendicular (lines) to each other: two lines intersect at right angle
- Foot of the perpendicular

**6. Types of angles**

- Acute angle: angle < 90 degree
- Right angle: angle = 90 degree
- Obtuse angle: 90 degree < angle < 180 degree
- Reflex angle: 180 degree < angle < 360 degree

**7. Complementary, supplementary, and adjacent angles**

- Complementary angles: the sum of two angles is 90 degree
- Supplementary angles: the sum of two angels is 180 degree
- Adjacent angles: two angles share a common side and a common vertex but do not overlap

**8. Properties of Angles**

- The sum of adjacent angles on a straight line is 180 degree
- The sum of all angles at a point is 360 degree
- Vertically opposite angles: when two lines intersect, the vertically opposite angles are equal

**1. Reverse Percentage**

- In a box, 15% of the balls are green. If there are 54 green balls, find the number of balls in the box.
- In the library, the fine for not returning a book on loan is 125% of the price of the book. If the fine for a book that was not returned was $90, find the price of the book.

**2. Percentage increase**

**Increase**= Increased_value ( End_value, or New_value) – Original_value- Percentage increase = (
**Increase**/**Original_value**) x 100% - Increased_value = (100% + Increase %) x Original_value

**3. Percentage decrease**

**Decrease**= Original_value – Decreased_value ( End_value, or New_value)- Percentage decrease = (
**Decrease**/**Original_value**) x 100% - Decreased_value = (100% – Decrease %) x Original_value

**1. Percentage: **a percentage is a fraction with 100 as the denominator

- Meaning of percentage: “per cent” means “by the hundred” or divided by one hundred. The term “percentage” is derived from the Latin
, meaning “per hundred”.*per centum*

38% = 38/100 = 0.38

100% = 100/100 = 1

0% = 0/100 = 0

- Decimals, percentages and fractions and how to express a number in each form
- Express one quantity as a percentage of another
- Compare quantities using percentage
- Word problems involving percentage

**Exam on ratio, rate, average rate, speed, uniform/constant speed and average speed, and Conversion of units.**

**1. Average Rate**

Rate involves two quantities and it is usually expressed as one quantity per unit of another quantity.

$/oz, mile/gal, words/min, $/sq.ft, $/hour

**2. Speed, uniform/constant speed and average speed**

Speed = (distance traveled) / (time taken)

Average Speed = (Total distance traveled) / (total time taken)

**3. Conversion of units**

km/hr → m/s → miles/hr

$/inch → $/ft

$/ticket → euro/ticket

**4. Home Work:**

**1. Ratio**

- Meaning of ratio – Given any two similar quantities, a and b, the ratio of a to b (denoted by a:b) is defined as a:b = a/b, where b != 0
- The quantities have to have same/similar unit.
- Simplification of ratios: a:b = (ma): (mb) = (a/m): (b/m), where m !=0

**2. Ratios of three quantities**: the ratio involving three quantities cannot be written as a fraction. However, it can be simplified by multiplying or dividing each term by the same constant. For example, a:b = 5:6, b:c = 8:11, find a:b:c. Recall LCM, we convert each ratio to an equivalent ratio where the new value of b is the LCM of the original values of b:

a:b = 5:6 = 5*4 : 6*4 = 20:**24**

b:c = 8:11 = 8*3 :11*3 = **24**:33

hence , a:b:c = 20:**24**:33
