## Sally

"Sally do you want me to take you the store to get some ingredients for your bake sale says her mom." ''Okay, I said." When we get there I go for the baking aisle. I look for the chocolate chips and see they come in 1/4 oz in each bag. And the recipe calls for 8 ozs. So I need to figure out how many boxes I need to get. To do this I'm going to need to multiply 1/4 and 8/1(another way of putting a whole number). When you multiply you don't have to change the denominators so they will be alike. So I simply just multiply 8x1 (8) and 4x1 (4). So the answer is 8/4 which I simplify to get 2, I need 2 boxes of chocolate chips for my recipe.
