this project was used to show how we use percents in the real world. i chose a career, and I had to record my annual salary. I also used taxes to figure out my net income. I also had to use the percentage of a monthly amount for something like a car. Once i figured that out i went and "bought" it, using the money i had. i then had a remander of 1,000 to buy 5 items. any money left over from that went toward my car. i then used that information to fill out 4 sheets.
During this activity that i will need percents in the real life. i also learned that life is not just buy anything because you have money, you have to think about other things like food, clothing, and housing/cars. you also have to save money in case you spend to much money on something.
