Jordan's 2nd Growing post

1.) What strategies were needed?
-The strategies that were needed was money, clocks, multiplication, division, ratio tables and also picture in order to solve this problem.

2.) How did you use these strategies?
- I used these strategies to help me find out how much was needed for the snack mix and how much it would cost.

3.)How could you of used these strategies?
- I could've just used a ratio table to help me, but i used the multiplication since I thought it was easier and faster to figure out everything. The ratio table is also a good help since you can divide the sections like how much cups, shreddies, peanuts, pretzels, and how much it costs.

4.)How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table
- To find the price of six cup snack mix i made a ratio table like this :

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

- I also used 3 cups , 1 cup, and 1/2 cup in a ratio table :
