What I Believe Is To Be Chosen...

For the food, I believe, through many operations of math, that we should order our food from Pizza Palace. Analyzing the charts below, if we were to estimate about at least 100-200 students attending, Pizza Palace has the cheapest price.


For the music and audio, I believe, through many operations of math, that we should hire at Classic Spin. Analyzing the charts below, if we were to estimate about maximum time of 6 hours and minimum of 3, Classic Spin has a cheaper price than Spin City.

Critical Thinking: G.S.G

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

When I created my equation, I already knew that would be my base of solving the missing information. I would take the first column, P, and multiply that by whatever number is given (it depends on the place) and then add the fee.

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 not be, but if you want to find out you would input a number into the equations and solve.

3. How do the steps you followed in Question 2 compare to the Order of Operations?Basically, O.O.O is PEMDAS. You first do parenthesis (which is just multiplication), then exponents (None), multiplication (the first thing), division (none), Addition (the additional fee), and then subtraction (Also none).

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 maximum people we could cater would be 118 students, having about 6 dollars left. A decimal or fraction cannot be a part of our answer because that would mean an arm would only come, or just a head. And that means that person is dead.

Critical Thinking: A.A.T.B

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

All you need to do is plug in the numbers. X (random number of hours) multiplied by 125 or 85, and then 250 or 75 added.

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.

No, since looking at just the information in the graph Spin City already has a high price due to minimum of 2 hours ($250).

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

You would just plug in the number of hours into the equation.

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?

I would be able to pay 10 hours. A decimal or fraction could possibly not be a part of my answer because it could lead into counting seconds, which is pretty difficult when you’re supposedly having fun.
