## What Do You Choose?

## Questions

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

The steps I used were to plug in the numbers in the appropriate places and solve the problem as I was taught how to do.

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.

There will be a time when the numbers are the same. For the pizza palace and stacked when no people are invited it would cost the same amount of money since they have the same catering/set up/delivery fee.

3. How do the steps you followed in Question 2 compare to the Order of Operations?

The steps were that you have to go in order by multiplying first then adding.

4. If you only have a budget of $1000 for food, how many people, maximum, would you be able to have at the 7th Grade Blowout? Can you have a decimal or fraction as part of your answer? Why or why not?

The amount of people would be 118 because anything over that exceeds the limit due to the set up fee. No you cannot have a decimal or fraction because you can't have a part of a person.

## What Do You Choose?

## Questions:

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

The steps I did were to plug in the numbers the rights places in the equation. From there I solved it like your supposed to do using the right steps.

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

There will not be any time where companies have the same price because since DJ Spin only has a maximum of 2 hours its prices do not match in the first 2 hours.

3. How do the steps you followed in Question 2 compare to the Order of Operations?

The steps relate to it because you have to do it backwards by adding first then multiplying.

4. If you only have a budget of $1000 for a DJ or music company, how many hours, maximum, would you be able to afford? Can you have a decimal or fraction as part of your answer? Why or why not?

The maximum amount of hours for $1000 will be 8 hours anything further you would be out of money. No you cannot have a decimal or fraction because you can't have a part of a person.
