Did You Know?

One of the first popular activity trackers was a pedometer, which measures number of steps taken. Some sources trace the history of the pedometer back to Leonardo da Vinci.

A pedometer called Manpo-kei (10,000 steps meter) was introduced in Japan in the mid1960s. Research led by Dr. Yoshiro Hatano indicated that 10,000 steps a day is the ideal energy output to maintain health.

Today, most activity trackers are electronic devices that can sync to a computer or a smartphone.

Many activity trackers are wearable technology. Some common places to wear activity trackers are on the wrist, arm, or chest. There are even collar-mounted activity trackers for dogs.

**Lesson 3.2 Connect Percent and Proportion**

**Quick Review**

You can use proportions to solve different types of percent problems. There are three values in a percent problem–the percent, the part, and the whole. If you know two of these values, you can set up a proportion to find the third value.

**Example**

What percent of 19 is 4.75?

The whole is 19 and the part is 4.75. Write a proportion, and solve for the percent, p.

\(\frac{\text { part }}{\text { whole }}=\frac{p}{100}\)

\(\frac{4.75}{19}=\frac{p}{100}\)

\(\frac{4.75}{19} \cdot 100=\frac{p}{100} \cdot 100\)

25 = p

So, 4.75 is 25% of 19.

**Lesson 3.4 Solve Percent Change and Percent Error Problems**

**Quick Review**

A percent change can be an increase or a decrease. You can use an equation to find a percent change.

change = percent change • original amount

A percent error is always a nonnegative value. You can use an equation to find a percent error.

difference = percent error • actual

**Example**

Juan’s puppy weighed 16 pounds at the age of 2 months. The puppy weighed 60 pounds at the age of 8 months. What is the percent change in the puppy’s weight?

change in pounds = 60 – 16 = 44

44 = P • 16

\(\frac{44}{16}\) = P

2.75 = P

The puppy’s weight increased by 275%.

**Riddle Rearranging**

Find the value of x in each unit rate. Then arrange the answers in order from least to greatest. The letters will spell out the answer to the riddle below.

I can… find unit rates with ratios of fractions.

Answer:

0.75 xc = 0.3h, 0.4 min = 0.6 ml, and 0.25 mi = 0.625 h.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

3/4c/1/3h = xc/1h.

0.75c/0.3h = xc/h.

0.75c x xc = 0.3h x h.

0.75xc = 0.3h.

3/5ml/2/5 min = x ml /1min.

0.6ml/0.4 min = x ml / 1 min.

0.4 x 1 min = x ml x 0.6 ml.

0.4 min = 0.6ml.

1/4mi/5/8 h = x mi / 1h.

0.25 mi/ 0.625 h = x mi / 1h.

x mi /1 h = 0.25 mi/0.625 h.
