Winter Wonderland Party

Extrazaganza

Food: I believe that we should use pizza palace because it has a very good deal with all the people that are coming to the party.

Music: I believe that we should use classic spin because it is cheaper and has a lot of hours for a cheap place.

proposed plan

I think that for our meal plan we should get pizza palace because, when you compare the most amount of people it’s the cheapest. It also benefits because even at only 50 people its still a better deal. And if we had to split it to where every person had to give a part to pay they would only need to give 8.25 dollars if all 200 people went to the party.

Proposed plan

I think Classic spin has a better deal because with the more hours, that deal is cheaper than spin city. It’s a lot cheaper and has better value because it has more variety of people. For example if we had a balance we needed to maintain which was lets say, 1000 we could have 10 hours of music.

Grab some Grub

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

I multiplied the number of people by the prices of the individual food and added the one time 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.

I would continue the tables until I got to the same numbers, and continue solving my equation. But since there is no company that will cost the same because the equations are different.

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

If I had the steps I would of noticed that your solving to get to a product.

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?

You cannot have a decimal or fraction because its impossible for there to only be a part of a person. 99 people for burger bonza 118 people for pizza palace, and 105 people for stacks.

all about that bass

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

All I did was multiply the hours by the price and added the one time fee.

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 would not be any companies costing the same because the equations are all different.

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

If I did have steps they would have been to solve different equations to get to the product.

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?

You could have a fraction or a decimal because you can have an hour with 30 minutes 15 minutes ect. For spin city I would only be able to afford 6 hours of music, and for Classic spin I would be able to afford 10 hours.
