### Angelo's Second Growing Post

1. The strategies that i used were adding and dividing. I multipled to get to cup 12 and divided to get to cup 1/2.
2. I used adding to get from 2 2/5 to 12 c. I just kept on adding 2 2/5 until, i got to 12 cups. And i used division to get from 12 to 1/2. I divided12 to 12 and got 1 cup. I then divided it by 2 to get to 1/2 cup.

3. I could have used ratio tables, and if i did used them, i'd use them to find out the costs for each container. I could of divided 12 by by 24 to get to 1/2 cup, instead of dividing two times and making it longer.

4. this is how i would figure out a 6 cup container.

THIS IS QUESTION # 5

Equivalence: 1/2 is also the same is 4/8 and 6/12.

Ratio Table: I divide 8/8 by 2 to get to 13 miles. I then divide by 4 to get to 1/8 and 3 1/4 miles. I divide 12/12 by 2 to get to 13 miles. I then divided by 6 to get to 1/12 and 2 1/6.

Partial Products: I multiplied 1/8 x 3 to get 3/8.I added 3/8 with 4/8 also know as (9 3/4 + 13)
I multiplied 1/12 x 5 to get to 5/12. I added 5/12 with 6/12 also known as ( 10 5/6 + 13)

Freindly Fractions: I just used 1/8 3 times and added it with 4/8
I just used 1/12 5 times and added it with 6/12.

Whole Matters: I used the same size of rectangles to see which one ran more miles

Measurement: I just added 1/8 7 times also know as (3 1/4 7 times).
I just added 1/12 11 times also know as ( 2 1/6 11 times).

Fractions are Opertions: 7/8 of 26 is also (7/8 x 26/1)
11/12 of 26 is also ( 11/12 x 26x1)

7/8 is bigger then the rest ,because the bigger the fraction the smaller the piece. Since it is the biggest fraction is has the smallest pieces. It is only missing one small piece. The other fractions are missing only one piece too, but they're bigger than the 1/8 piece. So Since 7/8 is missing the smallest piece, it means that the most pieces.

1st Explanaton:You put how much pizzas there is over how much people there is. With that improper fraction, simplify it to get the final answer.

2nd Explanation:You divide the pizza slices with how many people there is. You then give everyone one slice for each pizza and put how much slices they got over the whole of one pizza and get the final answer.
