### Exequelle's 2nd Growing Post

Question 1

1. What strategies were needed?
2. How did you use these strategies?
3. Or How could you of used these strategies.
4. How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table
5. Find 3 other values (amounts of Snack Mix) that could be solved using the same ratio table.
6. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes.

1. The strategies that were needed were a ratio tables, and division and multiplacation.

2. First you put on the ratio table money on one side then on the other cups. Then I used the ratio table to find the size of cups of snack mix and the how much money the snack mixes cost. Then divide the answer for 1/2 cup of snack mix, and multiply the answers for 12 cups of snack mix.

3. Another way of using these strategies is to multiply the 2 2/5 until you get to 12. Then multiply the money by how much you multiplied to get 12. Then to get 1/2 divide the money and the 12 cups by 24.

4. To get 6 cups, you can get 12 cups first. Then divide everything in two both the money and all the parts of the cups. It looks like this

5 and 6. The numbers I chose were 1, 25 , and 100.
To get 1, I knew that 1/2 was 75 cents and all you needed is to multiply it to get the amount. Which cost \$1.50, so 1 cup = \$1.50.
Then to get 25 I knew that 1 was \$1.50 and I just multiplied it by 25. Which cost \$37.50, so for 25 cups it = \$37.50.
Then to get 100 cups. I knew that 25 x 4 is 100. So I just multiplied \$37.50 by 4. Which then = \$150. So for a 100 cups = \$150
