This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 12, Unit 4, Grade 7. In this activity, students continue to practice finding percentages from dollar amounts including commission, tip, and markdown. Some of the questions require multiple steps to solve for the percentage needed. As students work, monitor for students who take different approaches to solving the multiple steps involved in these problems. For example, some students may subtract the discounted price from the original price to find the amount that the item has been marked down before finding the percentage of markdown. Other students may find the percentage of the original price used for the discounted price and then subtract that from 100%.
