IsRaeLie's 2nd Growing post

1.) What strategies were needed?
The strategies needed were ratio table (T-chart), division and multiplication.

2.) How did you use these strategies?
(and 3.) Or How could you of used these strategies.)
I used the ratio tables....first, i put the cup on one side and then money on the other side.And then i multiply 2 2/5 cup by 5 it equal to 12 cup.. so i did the same thing in the other side \$3.60x5=\$18.00.And then i just multiply all the ingredients by 5. For 1/2, i think i divided 12 cups and the ingredients by 24.

4.) How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table

First, i multiply 2 2/5 by 5 equal to 12 and then i did the same thing in the other side..so \$3.60x5=\$18.00. Then i divided 12 by 2 equal to 6 and then i did the same thing in the other side...\$18.00 divided by 2=\$9.00:))

5.) Find 3 other values (amounts of Snack Mix) that could be solved using the same ratio table. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes.

I decided to find the values for 3, 24 and 1 1/2.
To get 3 cups, i just divided 6 by 2= 3..so i did the same thing in the other side \$9.00 divided by 2=\$4.50.
To get 24 cups, i just multiply 3 cups by 8=24 cups and then i multiply \$4.50 by 8=\$36.00.
To get 1 1/2 cups,i divided 24 by 16=1.5, then i change 1.5 to a fraction, so its 1 1/2....and then i divided \$36.00 by 16=\$2.25.
