Numbertown ---- One More Form: Percents
“What do ya mean?” asked Mayor 1.

“There’s no sale here. They RAISED the price from $1/5 to $.25!" said 4/6.

“Show me,” demanded the mayor.

“We learned from 1/4 that all fractions have decimal equivalents,” continued 4/6. “Let’s see what 1/5 can be."

Since $.25 is more than $.20 by 5/100 or $.05. That means that the candy bar now costs $.05 more than before the sale.

Mayor 1.

"Yes, in Number Town all fractions that need to wear 100 as their denominator, can use the symbol % instead," replied 4/6.

"Why is that?" asked Mayor 1.
