Angel's 2nd Growing post

Question 1: What strategies were needed?
- The strategy i used was the ratio table to find the price and snack mix.

Question 2 : How did you use the strategies?
- I used the ratio table to seperate stuff so its easier and more organized.

Question 3 : How would you use these strategies?

- I only used on strategy which was the ratio table but so far thats the only thing i know how to do but theres definetly more strategies that will work.

Question 4 : How could you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack Mix?
- I used 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.

Question 2

2. 6/5 - 11/10= The strategy I used was the money because you can make 6/5 into 1.20 cents and 11/10 to 1.10 cents and all I had to do was subtract 1.20 to 1.10.

3. 3/5 + 2/7 =The strategy I used for this was the number line out of 35 and 2/7 out of 35 is 10 and 3/5 out of 35 is 21 and all i had to do was add that.

5. 5/6 - 1/4 =The strategy I used for this was the numberline out of 12 and 5/6 out of 12 is ten and 1/4 is seven.

1. 2/3 + 1/4 + 2/5 = The strategy I used for this was the clock because 2/3 is 40minutes 1/4 is 15minutes 2/5 is 24minutes.

Extra: 4. 1/6+1/9 is 5/18 = The strategy I used for this was the number line. It was out of 18 and 1/6 out of 18, 1/9 out of 18 is 2 and it equals 5/18 together.

- I used the clock and ratio table strategy to find out the answer.
