Marcus spent 10 hours doing his homework last week. This week he spent 11 hours doing homework. He says that he spent 110% more time doing homework this week. Is he correct? Show your work to justify your decision. And this is a practice essay so it needs to be justified in words how I got the same answer as Marcus ( and yes I know he is right)

    if he spent ten hours last week then the 10 hours is the max amount he has to pass so in fraction wise he has x/10 (a number over ten) from last week if he worked 11 hours this week then it would turn out with 11/10 (eleven over ten) witch means he has already passed the 100% he needed and with 1/10 left you just need 9 more so the equation to do that would be 11 divided by 10 equaling 1.1 then to turn a decimal into a percentage move the dot 2 spaces to the right making it 110%
