### Charmaine's 2nd Growing Post

Charmaine's 2nd Growing Post

1. What strategies where being used ?
The strategies being used were using a money, pictures, and ratio tables to solve the problems.
2. How did you use these strategies ?
I used these strategies by using money and ratio tables to show how i got the price of each cup and how much ingredients were in each bag. I also used pictures to show how 1 half of 1/2 is 1/4 and so on.

3. Or how could you have used these strategies ?
I did use all of these strategies ? But i could have used it in more of a organized and easy to understand way then i did use before.
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. My three new containers are 60, 10 and 1. Which price is \$90.00, \$15.00, and \$1.50.
