Fractions, Decimals and Percents
Two musicians describe the numbers in music and demonstrate how musical phrases are divided and how rhythm can be expressed as a fraction. One of the musicians tells of a percentage problem that cost him money. A baker says he has to understand the proportion of ingredients in order to bake, describes the -baker's percentage,- and reveals how he figures fractions. Other workers show how and why they work with fractions, decimals, percentages, and rates.
