### Hoppietonights (Jon's) 2nd Growing Post

1.What strategies were needed?

I used Ratio table, Multipication, and division(I think).

2.How did you use these strategies?

The Ratio table helped me figure out ingredients and money. Multipication and Division are the master planners behind this plot.

3.Or How could you of used these strategies.

I used this stratagy by using the Multipication and Division with the Ratio table.

4.How would 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.

1. 2/3 + 1/4 + 2/5 = 40/60 + 15/60 + 24/60 = 79/60 = 1 19/60

2. 6/5 - 11/10= 12/10 - 11/10 = 1/10

3. 3/5 + 2/7 = 21/35 + 10/35 = 31/35

4. 1/6 + 1/9 = 3/18 + 2/18 = 5/18

Equivalence-

I'm figuring out how much miles 7/8 and 11/12 is first.

26Miles

7/8= 4/8=13 Miles

3/8=9 3/4 Miles

1/8=3 1/4 Miles

Add 4/8 and 3/8 together... 7/8=22 3/4 miles

11/12=6/11=13 Miles

5/11=10 5/5 Miles

1/11= 2 1/5 Miles

Add 6/11 and 5/11 together... 11/12=23 5/5

Fractions show operations-

7/8 of 26 means 7/8x26

11/12 of 26 means 11/12x26

Ratio Tables (Proportional Reasoning)-

Measurement -

7/8= 1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8=7/8

11/12= 1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12=11/12

Partial Products or the Distributive Property-

7/8=4/8+3/8=13Miles+9 3/4 Miles= 22 3/4 Miles

11/12=6/11+5/11=13miles+10 5/5 Miles= 23 5/5 Miles

The Whole Matters-

7/8 Both are using 26 miles.

11/12

Friendly Fractions-

1/8=3 1/4 Miles

7x1/8=7/8

7x3 1/4= 23 5/5

1/12= 2 1/5 Miles

11x1/12= 11/12

11x2 1/5= 23 5/5

How much pizza does each student get in the different groups?

In group 1 4 kids got 3 pieces of pizza each. In group 2 5 kids got 4 pieces each. In group 3 6 kids got 5 pieces each. In group 4 8 kids got 7 pizzas each.
Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?

Group 4 got the largest portion.

I used a Ratio Table and Circles (Pizzas). Another way is I noticed... Group number 2 for example. 4 Pieces each. 5 kids 4 pizzas. Slices it 5 ways evenly (Look at the 5 kids). Then they got 4 each (Look at the 4 pizzas)
