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

1. The strategies that were needed were division and ratio tables

2. I used the ratiotable using the size of the cup and the price and then i multiplyed it by 5 to get my answer . For the 1/2 cup i took the 12 cup and divide the price and the recipie untill i got the answer i wanted.
3. I'm unsure of annother way i could use these strategies . :)
4. I could use a ratio table...

The price would be ( dollars and the bad is 6 cups. I devide by 2.

( Green )

3 cups of snack mix I would take the 6 pound and then divide the price and the bag by 2.then i would get the price that is 4.50 and the size of the bag wich is 6.

( Purple )

For 18 i would take the 6 cup recipie for the snack mix and then i would multiply it by 3 to get 18 and then theprice would be 13.50 for the 18 cup bag of snack mix.

( Yelllow )

If i was to figure out how much i needed for 2 cups i would take the 12 cup recipie and then i would divide it by 2 to get 6 and then by 3 to get 2 and then for the price i w0uld divide it by 2 to get 3 dollars .Another way is to just go to 6 cups and divide it by 2.
