Food Question and Answers
1. Describe how you created each equation?
First, my equation that I used is y=mx+b. I created the equation by using the given information and transferring the information/parts I needed to get my equation.
2. At what point will both companies will cost the same? Describe the steps you would use to determine this point, and then find the number of students for which both companies will cost the same amount.
I knew that the range of where the points would meet was in between 210-960 and 520-1,020 because that's where the businesses change averages of being higher or lower. To find this I used the calculator and found where both lines crossed paths and that's how I found when both companies would have the same price.
3. If you only have a budget of $1000 for food, how many people, maximum, would you be able to have at the 8th grade blowout for each company? Can you have a decimal or a fractionas part of your answer?
For the Pizza Palace the maximum number of people is 104 people with the price of $996. For Burger Bonanaza the maximum number of people would be $98 people with the price of exactly $1000. Also, you cannot have a partial answer because you have thirds or halves of a person.
