Jonah's Second Growing Post

Question 1

1. What strategies were needed?
- There were lots of strategies that I could of used like a ratio table, a clock, a number line, and money. With those strategies you could divide, subtract, add, and multiply.

2. How did you use these strategies?
- I first used money but that didn't work out. So I used a ratio table and I added, divided, and multiplied.

3. Or How could you of used these strategies?
- With money I don't think it would work because some of the numbers wouldn't fit well with the strategy. Clocks wouldn't work out too because there aren't many fractions to work with and that the numbers don't really fit well with the numbers that work well with a clock. A ratio table would work better because it shows that what you do on one side with the number or fraction you do the same thing one the other side with the number or fraction.

4. How could 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
