### Dorian's 2nd Growing Post

1.
For the puppy kibble test I used the multiply and divide strategies, and I also used fractions like cirlce graphs but with containers.
I think another one would of been more helpful like just dividing the fractions in different ways like the same answer but get it a different way.
I would first see how many cups each ingredient is, then I would see if all of them ca go into six cups to make the snack mix.

2.
2/3 + 1/4 +2/5 = 5/12 I added both numerators and both denominator and
looked to see what they each amounted to.

3/5 + 2/7= 5/12 I did the samething as I did for question one
I added both numerators and both denominators and it came out to be the

1/6 + 1/9= 2/15 for this question I added the denominator and the numerator to
get the answer(I did the reverse of question one and two).

5/6 - 1/4= 4/2 I subtracted the numerator and the denominator to get the answer
(I did the same thing as number three but I just subtracted it instead of adding them)

3.
(1) they will each get two peices for the whole pizza as you can see they will each get 3 peices each( 3/4) of a pizza

(2) they will ech get 1/2 a peice for each pizza, because they each go into the pizza every
1/2 a peice

(3) they each get one peice of pizza, so there is no leftovers because if you give them 2 peices each there won't be enough pizza for all of them

(4) they each get three peices of pizza because they go into the pizza two times

group four would of ate the most peices out of all them i drew pizzas on paint and looked for how many peaople went into the pizza with no leftovers.

I think I should of explained it more to show what I did.
i divided the amount of pizza with the amount of people and got the answer
which is how many peices each person in the group
will get.

Hello Dorian.
Great job on typing up what you did and how you got the answers... But i suggest that you like.. Add the pictures and than answer it so it would be easier for people to know what your getting at. And so that they dont have to go to voicethread.
I give you 8/10 because you didnt have your pictures with your work, instead you put it on voicethread. and you need to improve that. :)
