Here is the link to my blog post about using linear models with percents. You can see the progression, tools, and manipulatives I used. http://burnsmath.blogspot.com/2017/03/percents-on-linear-model.html

This question would be better if you mention that the line is to scale.

Definitely. I think depending on the students level it could be said at the beginning or be a part of the discussion when sharing answers and strategies.

Another answer that Eloise, Charlotte and Niki came up with is 34%, 17, 50.
