7th grade party!

By:Leslie Hill

The stuff we will have at the part is planned now!

For this party, we will be eating at Stacked! I have chosen this food company because it has the lowest prices for the highest amount of food bought. As in for 50 students, the cost would be 450$, and for 100 students, 850$. These prices are below the other prices including Burger Bonanza and Pizza Palace. The equation for this restaurant is 8X+50.For the music I have chosen Spin City for entertainment.These prices were below the prices for Classic spin.For 2 hours it is 125$ and for 3 hours 187.5$.This is the best choice.

Questions

  1. Describe the steps you used to solve each row of the table.

First I read the flyers and found out the rate of change for each company. Then I typed it in the box adding a X for the variable. Then I solved it by using the number of food objects instead of the X. That’s how I got the Answers.

NO thy would never be in the same number. This is so because the numbers are go by a certain number and end on a certain number. I made a chart and compared the two sides.

In these music companies you would be able to purchase at most 7-8 hours of music time with a budget of 1000$ You can not have a fraction or decimal for this problem because the companies don’t allow purchases of parts of an hour.
