# Christmas party!

### by Ethan Nguyen

The best music to get/play is the classic spin because it provides more hours than the other one and it is cheaper.

## Part A- grab some grub

I took the problem and I calculated it and made it make sense with the equation and found the variables.

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.

No, none of them cost the same I saw the rate going slow off ad none of the numbers were the same.

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

I did all the same numbers and did the right equation I didn’t come across one cost that matched any of them.

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 would have the maximum of 118 7th graders at the party.

No because you cant half a person and cut them up. It has be a whole number not decimals and same with the food you have to have a whole number.

For the fist one I multiplied the x and 125 to get the cost and for the seconded table I multiplied x with 85 plus the set up fee (75)

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.

Yes they both had a cost of $500 and how I found out was I did the same table numbers and I compared them and I saw they both had the same cost.

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

I did all of the tables the same numbers and I compared them after solving al of them and I compared them a saw that both of them had the same cost of $5oo.

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 only afford 10 hours to play music In the party to keep their budget.

If there was a decimal you could keep it because it represents minutes and t could determine how many hours and minutes there are. The decimal can be allowed and is acceptable for these problems.
