True Statement?

Look at each statement and decide whether or not it could be true.

If the statement could be true, provide details about the situation in the statement that explain how the statement could be true.

If the statement could not be true, explain why.

  • 125% of the students are absent today.
  • The snowfall last year was 150% of normal.

Think about the situation. Does the statement make sense for that situation?
