"Bee" Proud, Anamika!
Friday night, on live national TV, eighth-grader Anamika Veeramani from North Royalton, Ohio, won the 2010 Scripps National Spelling Bee. In the ninth round, she correctly spelled the winning word, "stromuhr" (a device that measures the amount and speed of blood flow through an artery). Anamika outlasted all the other competitors. At the beginning of the Spelling Bee, there were 1 third grader, 4 fourth graders, 19 fifth graders, 54 sixth graders, 66 seventh graders, and 129 eighth graders. What percent of the total competitors were eighth graders? Round to the nearest tenth.
