Find an example of the use of percents in a newspaper
or magazine. Explain how the percent is used and whether it is used correctly. Be sure to cite the reference.
Be aware that technically, "percent" and "percentage" are
not the same thing. "Percentage" is an amount of something,
calculated as the percent (converted to a decimal) times the base. The textbook
is using "percentage" in the vernacular but is technically incorrect.
