### Josephine's 2nd Growing post

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. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes.

1.What strategies were needed?
I think the strategies that were needed were pictures, ratio tables, money, multiplication and division.

2.How did you use these strategies?
I used the strategy ratio table to find out how get 1/2 cup from 12 cups.

3.Or how could you of used these strategies.
I used all the strategies that I thought that were needed to answer these questions already.

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

Since I knew that 12 cups was double the amount of 6 cups all I had to do was divide 12 cups and how much it was by 2 to get 6 cups and how much it was.

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.

new containers: 1 cup, 3 cups, 4 cups
To find 1 cup:
I started out with 12 cups and \$18.00. Then I divided 12 cups and \$18 by 12. And that gave me 1 cup and a \$1.50.
To find 3 cups:
I multiplied 1 cup and \$1.50 by 3 which equaled 3 cups and \$4.50.
To find 4 cups:
I mainly did the same thing to find out 3 cups. I multiplied 1cup and \$1.50 by 4 which equaled 4 cups and \$6.00.
