### Mary's Scribe

12 cup :
First, to get from 2 2/5 to 12 C, you multiply 2 2/5 by 5.

2 2/5 x 5 = 12 cups

Since we multiplied that one times 5, we have to times 5 on all of them.

These would be the amount of indredients in the 12 cup container :

(s s) 1 1/5 = 6 C

(peanuts) 4/5 x 5 = 4 C

(pretzels) 1/5 x 5 = 2 C

1/2 cup :

To get from 12 to 1/2, you have to devide 12 into 24, so i just divided the answers of the 12 cup container by 24.

These would be the answers to the 1/2 cup container :

(spicy shreadies) 6 / 24 = 0.25 = 1/4 C

(peanuts) 4 / 24 = 1/6 C

(pretzels) 2 / 24 = 1/12 C

Price :

(12 cup)

We started off with a \$3.60 2 2/5 cup container. Since we multiplied everything by 5 to get the answers for the 12 cup, i'm multiplying \$3.60 x 5 which equals \$18.00. So it would cost \$18.00 for a 12 cup container.

(1/2 cup)

I took the answer of the 12 cup container (\$18.00) and divided it by 24 which equalled \$0.75. So, a 1/2 cup container would be 75 cents.

Nice job Mary. Thanks for all of your work. How could you have used images to better explain your scribe?
