  1. Good Job, Kyanna! I liked how you used different colors to organize your scribe post and how you added pictures to represent your explanation in a simpler way. If you still have time, could you type your explanation also? So we have both a picture and a typed up reference. Also, on your pictures, box in the numbers that you will need in order to answer your question (ex: in order to get 6 1/2% you will need 5,1, and 0.5). Also, for the last picture, you could have had the picture in another angle where we could see the total. Otherwise, great job!
