Winter Wonderland Party

By: Marissa Friedman

Part A- Grab some grub

  1. Well for the equation part I looked at the flyers and looked at how much it was per person and looked for the fee (y-intercept) and easily made my equation. The 2nd part to determine the IV and DV I just looked at what is the main 2 parts of the equation . On the 3rd part of the table you can’t really have a unit of measure for people so I just said people and for the cost of the food I said Dollars because that’s what we’re paying with. On the 4th row for the letters used for IV and DV for people I just put p because you can tell its people easily and for the cost I put the letter c because it also easily recognizable as cost. And the next few rows after that I just plugged in the number of people in the equation for the letter p and got the total cost.

  2. Yes there will be a number where both companies will cost the same. The steps I would use is to put the equations side by side and isolate the variable and simplify the equation. The number of people where both companies cost the same for Burger Bonanza and Pizza palace is 15 people, Burger Bonanza and Stacked! Is 10 people, and Pizza Palace and Stacked! Is 20 people.

  3. Well when isolating the variable you have to use PEMDAS.

  4. The people maximum I would have at the party would be 118 people. You can’t have a decimal or fraction as your answer because you can’t invite ¾ of a person to a party.

  5. Proposed Plan: The company that I think Ms.Mauk should use for the party is the Pizza Palace when you look at the graphs the Pizza Palace is the cheapest out of all of the food companies.

Part B: All About That Bass & Part C: Turn Up The Bass

  1. To solve the equation I first looked at the prices per hour and the fees and such and used all of that information to make my equation. For finding the IV and DV I looked at the prices and hours because those were the main things that were mathematical in the flyer. For finding the unit of measure for the IV and DV I thought that to measure the hours I would measure the hours in hours in this case because it makes the most sense. The letter that I used for my IV and DV was to use the first letter of the IV and DV. And for the rest of the rows I just used the formula.

  2. Yes there will be a number of hours where both where both companies will cost the same. The steps I would use is to set up both equations side by side and isolate the variable and simplify the equation. The hours it would take for both companies to cost the same amount is 1.88 hours.

  3. Well when you isolate the variable you have to use PEMDAS and that has to do with order of operations.

  4. If I had a budget of $1000 I would be able to afford 10.88 hours for a DJ. I can have a decimal or fraction for my answer because the fraction or decimal could be made into minutes.

  5. Proposed Plan: The Company I think Ms. Mauk should use for the party is Classic Spin because if you compare the prices Classic Spin is a bit more cheaper than Spin City.in the flyers
