    What did notice about the earthquake pattern?
  • 4. The Earthquakes happen where the plates converge together.
    Where do the earthquake happen?
  • 5. 47% of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary.
    What percentage of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary?
  • 6. 71% of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary.
