Liezl's 2nd Growing Post


a. the strategies that i used for this test were multiplication and division.
- i used multiplication to get from 2 2/5 to 12 CUPS
- i used division to get from 12 to 1/2 CUP

b. i didn't use a ratio table, but if i did, i'd use it to find out the cost of the cups

c. Betty's 6 cup snack mix

These are my 3 other values


Group 1: Since there is three people and four people, i wrote down the numbers of pizzas and divided them into four for each person, so each person gets 3/4 of pizza and then i multiplied the number of people to the number of pizzas. 4 x 3 = 12

Group 2: Each person in this group gets 4/5 of the whole pizza.
Group 3: I multiplied five to get 40 pizzas and then divided them into 40 to get 6 1/2 for every person.

Group 4: I multiplied 7 pizzas to 8 the number of pieces and was 56 pieces all together and then i divided 8 which was the number of people to get 7 pieces of pizza.
