# Winter Wonderland Party

## My Recommendatlons:

Food: I think that we should use stacked because it has the cheapest price for the food. You get a fair amount for what you pay for.

Music: I think that we should use classic spin because it is less money for more time to listen to music. I prefer to go her so I can save money.

## Critical Thinking Questions

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

- What I did first was to do the equation for each table. Then, I did the independent and dependent variable. The 3rd step was to do the unit of measure for the independent and dependent column. Next, was to do the letter to represent the independent and dependent variable. Last, I did the number part to figure out how many people could come and the cost of the part with the amount of people-

2. Will there ever be a number of students where both companies will cost the same? Describe the steps you would use and then solve for the number of students for which both companies will cost the same amount.
