**Step It Out**

Question 1.

The field goal percentage (FG%) in basketball is found by dividing the number of baskets made (FG) by the number of baskets attempted (FGA).

Hector compares the field goal percentages for Thomas and Lucas.

A. Compare each place value, working from left to right, until you find a digit that is different. In which place value are the digits different?

Answer:

0.478 > 0.473

Thomas’s filed goal percentage is more than Lucas’s field goal percentage

Explanation:

I compared the FG% of Hector and Lucas

FG% of Thomas is 0.478

The FG% of Lucas is 0.473

Start comparing

In tenths and hundredths place the digits are same

In thousandths place value the digits are different

8 > 3

0.478 > 0.473

So, Thomas’s filed goal percentage is more than Lucas’s field goal percentage

Answer:

0.473 < 0.478

C. Compare the digits using the greater than symbol.

Answer:

0.478 > 0.473

D. Compare the field goal percentages for Thomas and Lucas in two different ways. Use the less than symbol, and then use the greater than symbol.

Question 2.

The table shows the field goal percentages of three players.

A. What is the greatest place-value position in which you find a digit that is different?

Answer:

I find the different digit in hundredths place value and thousandths place value

So, the greatest place value position is hundredths place.

B. Use your answer from Part A. Which player has the greatest digit in this place-value position?

Answer:

Field goal percentage of Robinson is 0.452

Robinson has the greatest digit in the hundredths place value position

C. Move to the next lesser place-value position and compare the digits of the other two players. Which player has the greater digit in this place-value position?

Answer:

The next lesser place value position is thousandths place

Field goal percentage of Ortega is 0.447

Field goal percentage of Alabi is 0.449

Alabi has the greater digit in the thousandths place value position.

D. Order the players, by name, by their field goal percentages from greatest to least.

Answer:

Robinson – 0.452 > Alabi – 0.449 > Ortega – 0.447

Explanation:

I put the filed goal percentages of the players from greatest to least along with their names

Robinson has the greatest percentage than Alabi and Alabi has greater percentage than Ortega.
