### Allison's 2nd growing post

Question 1

1.) What strategies were needed?
The strategies that were needed to solve this problem were the ratio table, division, and multiplication. I also used the clock method.

2.) How did you use the strategies?
By using a ratio table or the clock method I could easily figure out how to get the price and the other information given on the test.For an example (on a ratio table): I took 2 2/5 cups then multiplied it by 5 to get 12 cups . I then did the same thing for the price. 2 2/5 cups was \$3.60 so then you multiply that by 5 since you multiplied 12 by 5 then you get \$18.00.

3.) Or how could you have used these strategies?
You can use this strategy to find out the answers to other amounts for diffrent sized containers.

4.) How would you figure out the price of the 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack Mix?
You can use a ratio table. Since we know that 2 2/5 x 5 is 12 and the price of 12 cups is \$18.00. You now just divided 12 by 2 to get 6 then do the same thing with the price. Since we know that \$18.00 is the price of 12 cups, you just divide 18 by 2 to get how much it is for 6 cups which would be \$9.00

5.)Find other 3 values that could be solved sing the ratio table. Find the \$\$ of new container sizes.

Question 2
