One week from today we will be at Button Bay State Park in Vergennes, Vermont. Before we go, we need to decide on lean-to arrangements. There will be 68 students and a total of 20 adults on the trip. Lean-tos can have a maximum of 8 people in them. If this is the case, how many lean-tos do we need to reserve?
Is there more than one way to solve this? What things do you need to think about before you start solving the problem? How did you solve this? Make sure you explain your results using as much math language as possible and include some form of representation as well.
Good luck, and remember... show all your work!
I have been looking through catalogs for new pencils to order for my class of 16 students. Every time the ones I have get sharpened, all the lead falls out of them. So, I have decided to give mechanical pencils a try, even though they are more expensive. Please help me. I need to find the best deal. Please refer to the price list to see the information I have. Write to me when you have your answer.
Mighty Mechanical Pencils: 24 for $13.20
Luna Mechanical Pencils: 36 for $21.60
Funky Tube Mechanical Pencils: 12 for $6.50
Please include in your assessment:
- Which pencils should I order?
- Which are the least expensive per pencil?
- Which are the most expensive per pencil?
- How many sets or individual pencils do I need to order?
- How much will my total order cost?
- Why do you think all the pencils are not the same price?
