What strategies were used?
The Strategies that i used were multiplication, division and i used a ratio table.
How did you use the strategies?
I used multiplication and division with the ratio table to figure out the new size containers. I also used these strategies to figure out the prices of each new size containers.
Or how could you have used these strategies?
I stuck with the ratio table because that was the first thing that i thought of. I could of done a clock or a number line too. I think the ratio table was the easiest.
How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table.
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 strategy was to divide the number of pizzas by the number of people and do the same thing to the people to get how many slices per person.
Group one : Sally Bob, Gidget and Biff Share 3 pizzas.
So this on i divided 4 by 4 which is 1, and then i divided 3 by 4 which is 0.75 or 3/4. So each person gets 3/4 of a pizza.
Group 2 Stan, Holly, Barry, Ben and Ichkabibble share 4 pizzas.
For this group i divided 5 people by 5 to get 1 and divided 4 by 5 to figure out how many slices per person. And i got 4/5 per person
Group 3 Eric, Susy,James, Betty, Veronica and Moose share 5 pizzas.
So group three has 6 people and they have 5 pizzas all together. So you divide 5 by 6 for each pizza slice for each person and i got 5/6.
Group 4 Paul, Alex, Chris, Jughead, Archie, Reggie, Mr. Wotherspoon and Midge share 7 pizzas.
So the last group had 8 people and 7 pizzas to share. So i divided the pizzas by 8 and the people by 8 also and each person has 7/8 of a pizza.
Group 1 gets the most pizzas.
