### Alexandra's Second Growing Post

Question 1
What strategies were needed?
For me, the strategies that were needed in this test were the ratio table, multiplication, and division.

How did you use these strategies?

By using the ratio table, you can easily figure out how to get the price, and the total amount of the ingredients needed in a given amount of container. The multiplication and division can help too. You can get the unit price and ingredient for a unit by using division. And then if you have the things for a unit, you can get any other numbers that you want by multilying everything by the number you want to get.

Does this confuse you? Here is an example.

Or How could of you used these strategies?

I could have used these strategies to find the amount of the the ingredients that were needed in a 12 cup container. Just like this

How could 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 ratio table. Find the new \$\$ of your new container sizes.

We know that 12 cups of BSM costs \$18.oo, the 6 cups costs \$9.00 and 1 cup costs \$1.50. I used these things to figure out how much it costs when i want to buy 4 cups, 3 cups and 2 cups of BSM. Here's what I did.

Question 2

You are going to create a voice thread explaining the strategies you used on your test. You need to choose 4 out of 6 questions.

1. 2/3 + 1/4 + 2/5 =

2. 6/5 - 11/10=

3. 3/5 + 2/7 =

4. 1/6/+1/9 =

5. 5/6 - 1/4 =

6. 3 3/5 - 1 4/5 =

I chose question number 1, 3, 5 and 6.

Here's what I did on the test:

Question #3

Last Question
PIZZA PIZZA !

Comment:
For your question#2 I can't see how you did it because your voice thread isn't working so i couldn't mark it. For question#3 it seems like you didn't really explain all the pictures that you made. I think what you need to work on for next time is to explain each of them and make sure your voice thread works. I like how you did for each pictures on your voicethread its a neat work.
