This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 8, Unit 4, Grade 7. The purpose of this activity is for students to use equations to represent situations of percent increase and decrease. Additionally, students identify the original and new amount in the double number lines to reinforce what they learned in earlier lessons (that the original amount pertains to 100%). As students work on the task, look for students who created various equations for the last question.
