Comparing Percentages of Integers
How Do You Compare Percentages of Integers? Before we look into how we can compare percentages of integers, let's take a look at what are integers. Integers are any numbers that don't have a fraction, or you can say that integers are numbers having no fractional part or decimals. They include all the positive and negative numbers. An example of integers is the series of these numbers. 2, 5 -8, 0, -13, 17, -7. If you are to compare integers, you can simply do it by comparing the two or more numbers. A negative integer is always less than any positive integer even 0 in any given case. But if you have percentages of integers, then it might be a little bit difficult for you to compare them. Notice that you have a negative integer, it's calculated percentage would also be a negative number/percentage. And the percentage of a positive number integer would be positive. So, the comparison becomes easy in identifying which is the larger number and which one is the smaller number. This series of lessons and worksheets shows students how to compare percentile values of an integer. A great skill to have when shopping.
