In literacy we have been looking at The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes.

Below are some things to help you think:
- Is he nice to you?
- Do you already know the highwayman?
- What emotions is he showing?
- Is he travelling somewhere?
- Have you recently heard anything from the inn?
- How is he riding his horse?

1) 22% of 700 =
2) 15% of 200 =
3) 20% of 800 =
4) 12% of 96 =
5) 62% of 144 =

What is 15% of 80?
Can you now do it?
15% of 80 =
