Jonathan Lu and Raymond Bautista Pay it Forward

Our Pay it Forward act of kindness was to brighten people's day with kind messages. We chose this activity because we wanted to make people think positively and to encourage them to do something nice to other people in the future. For our act of kindness, we are going to help random strangers in one street. We placed sticky notes that have positive sayings onto people's mailboxes. We did this random act of kindness on December 12 and December 16.

Our endeavor went well because we made a few people happy and it also made us delighted. We stuck notes on peoples mailboxes and made some people very happy. I felt really joyful inside because I know that the people are happy and some even gave us positive feedback. One of the strangers was really happy about what we did and it made his day. Probably some other people felt the same way. We did tell him to ''pay it forward'' and gave a little explanation on what ''pay it forward" is about. The person agreed to take part of ''pay it forward'' sometime in the New Year.

I think the idea of ''pay it forward'' is important because people need to help others to make a difference in the world in a positive way. Without ''pay it forward'', everything would be the same and nothing would get better. We need the world to be a better place for everyone. Our act of kindness made a difference because people were happy and they will do the same to others. If that kept on going the whole world will be a positive, happy, safe place to live in.

Angel's Pay it Forward

Part 1
"Pay it Forward" is a random act of kindness done towards an individual or a group of people. If by chance he, she or they would like to repay you for your deed, you could instead just tell he, she or they to "Pay it Forward" giving them a chance to do something nice for 1 or more other people.

Part 2
My "Pay it Forward" act of kindness was serving and performing for the seniors at the Betelstadur home. I chose this activity because it was an idea that my friends and I thought of on our own and we thought "Hey! Why not start off their day with a little smile caused by a couple of strangers?" We helped the seniors and did it by getting them cups of coffee and plates of food while they were talking to their neighbours and enjoying the drawings and messages in the Christmas cards we gave them. We did our act of kindness around noon on Christmas Eve.


Part 3 
I think our act of kindness went pretty well. We went to the sun room, prepared the food and were gladly welcomed with open arms. After a while of serving them coffee and food, we performed a song for them and were gladly praised. I felt at first relieved that they would take time off their day to come out of their rooms and see what we had prepared for them. Seeing their smiling faces was heart warming and nice. As for their reactions, I was happy to hear that they were amazed that young girls like me are taking time off their day to do something nice for a bunch of strangers without anything in return. We had a speech after our performance telling them the meaning of "Pay it Forward" and encouraging them to pass it on to others. I don't remember their reactions to our request but I hope they consider doing a random act of kindness to another stranger or to someone they know. 

Part 4
I think the idea of "Pay it Forward" is important because people are faced with problems everyday and sometimes doing a random act of kindness lightens up their mood helping that person face that problem and also to lighten up another persons mood. I do believe my act of kindness made a difference because it gave them something to remember on a rough day that can make them smile.

Heather's Pay it Forward


















Part 1
Pay it Forward is doing an act of kindness towards others. It can be indirect or direct. You don't get anything in return, you just feel good about it. And if they do offer something in return you just tell them to pass on an act of kindness to other people.


Part 2
My Pay it Forward act of kindness was visiting a senior home Betelstadur.
I chose to do this activity because they are grandparents, parents, friend, daughter and son to others and they have been there for their family and friends. Others don't realize how big of a help they were to us, so I payed it forward to them as an act of kindness and appreciation. 
I helped out the seniors who lives alone at the senior home at Betelstadur.
There we accompanied the seniors. My friends and I served them free coffee and food like egg rolls, cupcakes, cookies, mandarins, etc. We chatted for a little bit and handed each one of them a Christmas card.
My friends and I did this act of kindness on Christmas Eve at Betelstadur during 1:00 P.M until 3:00 P.M.



Part 3
My act of kindness went very well. 
My friends and I along with my friend's mom, great aunt and my sister (Bethel) helped us buy supplies and ingredients for the seniors. We bought Christmas cards, supplies for baking, ingredients for the food we made and Christmas hats for us to wear. After buying the ingredients for the food we made, my friends and I went to cook the food and brought them over at the seniors home. We went to the seniors home around 10:30 A.M. and prepared the place for them. My friends and I then chatted a little bit with them and at 3:00 P.M. we cleaned up and went to celebrate Christmas Eve with our family and friends.
It was a long day for us, though it felt good seeing those bright smiles on their face.
They were very fond of our act of kindness for them, it was so nice seeing them interact with their neighbours and friends. 
We did ask them to Pay it Forward. They didn't react a lot, but while we were saying it, I saw a lot of them having serious faces and it seemed like it was for sure that they will pay it forward to someone else too. 

Part 4
Pay it Forward is important because it brings back the joy and love to all people. It shows how a small act of kindness can be a big difference to all people. This small act of kindness spreads bigger and is a world-wide action.
I do think that my pay it forward act of kindness has made a difference because to the seniors, they were not lonely and they gathered together to have a great time with those who love them and who they love the most.

Rona's Pay it Forward

Part 1
Pay it Forward is doing a random act of kindness towards someone you know, a stranger, or a group of people. You could even be anonymous while doing your act. If the person/people ask you for anything you want in return, you tell them to Pay it Forward, meaning they will also do something nice for a person/group of people.
Part 2
My Pay it Forward act of kindness was helping my mom out with her errands.
I chose this activity because I never do chores at home. My mom takes care of everything. I thought that I would help her out a bit.
I helped my mom.
I took out the garbage and recycleable products.
I did my act of kindness on December 22nd, around 4:30 PM.
Part 3
It went well. 
I saved my mom some time. 
It felt nice helping my mom out with house errands for the first time.
My mom was very greatful.
I didn't ask her to Pay it Forward.
She didn't have a reaction, since I didn't tell her.
I didn't ask her to Pay it Forward because she wouldn't be able to find the time to do it. She's sort of a busy person.
Part 4
The idea of Pay it Forward is important because it's nice picturing a ton of people doing nice deeds for each other without asking for something in return.
The difference my act made wasn't big, but it saved my mom more time. She was getting the house ready for Christmas/New Year's/my dad's birthday. She was preparing food, and cleaning the place up. She even cleaned our pet fish's tank, haha. Then I was just sitting there, on my iPod. After seeing her work so hard, I decided to help her out.

Question 7 pg. 149
100 is the number of caribou moved to a new location.Then another 10% came. It then became 110. Then it increased by 20% the next year, it became 132 because it was 20% of the new number of caribou

For the show you know I'll use 400 as my price
50% off for a day
50% of 400 is basically 200 because 50% is half so you divide by 2
so the total is $200

25% off followed by another 25% off the reduced price the next day
25% of 400 equals 100        400-100=300
so now the price is 300 the first day.
25% of 300 equals 75 so  300-75 equals 225
so the total is 225.

As you can see the 50% off for a day is better than 25% followed by another 25% the next day

Sophia's Percent Post

A percent is a equivalent number out of 100.

100 percent means everything, 100/100
To find 100 percent you have to divide the equivalent number by 1.

50 percent means 50/100, 1/2, divided by 2, half.
To find 50 percent you have to divide the equivalent number by 2.

25 percent means 25/100, 1/4, quarter, divided by 4.
To find 25 percent you have to divide the equivalent number by 4.

10 percent means 10/100, 1/10, divided by 10.
To find 10 percent you have to divide the equivalent number by 10.

1 percent means 1/100, divided by 100.
To find 1 percent you have to divide the equivalent number by 100.


3)












3) Converting Percents Fractions and Decimal

To convert a fraction to a decimal you have to divide the numerator and the denominator to get a decimal number.
ex. 3/40 = 0.075
3 divided by 40 makes 0.075

Now to convert a decimal to a percent you have to multiply my 100, because percents are out of 100 and also a decimal is out of 1.
ex. 0.075*100 = 7.5 so thats 7.5%
0.075 multiplied by 100 makes 7.5

To convert a percent to a fraction you have to get the decimal which if it was 7.5% you divide that by 100  which makes 0.075. Since the place holder is in the thousandths place we put the denominator 1000 and then 75 on the numerator. Then we divide by 2 to get a equivalent fraction.
ex.
75/1000 divide until we get an equivalent fraction = 3/40

4)
20% of 60
Calculator:

20/100= 0.2        0.2*60=12    therefore 12 is 20 percent of 60 

Mental Math:

20% of 60 0.1% of 40

250% of 400







5) Combining Percents

Which is a better deal? 
50% off or 25% off of an already reduced price of 25%
 If the price was $60.00

 to get 50 percent you divide 50 by 100 to get the decimal of 50. Then the number will be 0.5, so 0.5 * 60 = 30.00 so 50% of 60.00 is $30.00.

Now 25% of an already reduced price of 25%.
First get 25% of 60
Which will be 25/100 because all percents a out of 100. Then that would be 0.25, 0.25 * 60 = 15 then
 60- 15 = 45.00
Then there will be a new total  which is $45.00 Then repeat what you did before but instead of the 60 which was the old total it will be 45.00 so 45 -15  = 40.00

So now you know 50% is better then 25% off of an already reduced price of 25%.

Discount is what you save
Sale price is what you pay
Total price is what you pay with the taxes

3/40- First you divide the numerator by the denominator. Then you multiply the decimal by 100 to get your percent. 
3 divided by 40 = 0.075
0.075 x 100 = 7.5%

5.98- First you multiply by 100. To find the fraction, you count the amount of digits there are. In this case there are 3.
5.98 x 100 = 598%
The fraction would be 598/100.

750%- First you divide the percent by 100. You divide by 100 becausena percent is equivalent to 100 so you have to do the opposite operation.
750 divided by 100 = 7.5 
In this case, it would be 7 1/2.

3. You need to explain how to convert from Decimals to Percents to Fractions.  Choose 3 sets


26%

to find a decimal in a percent you will have to divide the percent by 100. 26÷100=0.26
to find a fraction in a percent you have to just read the decimal. 0.26=26/100

7/10

To convert a fraction into a decimal you will have to divide the numerator by the denominator.              7 ÷ 10=0.7

To convert a fraction you will have to divide the numerator by the denominator 7 ÷ 10=0.7 Then multiply by 100. 7 ÷ 10=0.7 

       0.7÷100=0.007%

0.024
to convert a decimal to a fraction all you have to just read the decimal really. 24\1000
to convert a decimal to a percent you multiply by 100.

Nicklaus' Percent Post

A percent is an equivalent fraction out of a hundred. You can convert percent to a fraction, decimal and degrees. You can add, subtract, multiply or divide fractions. Percent also means per hundred. Percents are part of a circle graph. If you divide the numerator by the denominator and multiply it by a hundred, your answer will be a percent.

100% means everything.
To find 100%, you need to divide the denominator by 1. For example 10/10 or 18/18

50% means half
To find 50%, you need to divide the denominator by 2. For example 2/4 or 6/12

10% means 1/10 of the whole number
To find  10%, you need to divide the denominator by 10. For example 4/40 or 30/300

25% means a quarter
To find 25%, you need to divide the denominator by 4. For example 1/4 or 25/100

1% means 1/100 of the whole number
To find the 1%, you need to divide the denominator by 100. For example 4/400 or 0.2/20

(i multiply the fractions by 100 because each percent is out of 100 and each decimal is out of 1. So if you  cross multiply or cross product, you will get the same answer. It can work backwards if you are trying to to turn a percent to a decimal)
