Describe two different ways in which Taj could measure each of the following quantities. He can use full scoops only.
a) 3 1/4 times as much as the smallest scoop holds.
First off, i figured that the smallest scoop is 1, or 1/1.
To get 3 1/4 as much as the smallest scoop, I changed the fractions into decimals, so i ended up with
I then changed 3 1/4 to a decimal and got 3.25.
The two answers I came up with were:
1.large scoop (2.5) + medium scoop (1.75) - small scoop (1.0) = 3.25
2.two large scoops (5) - medium scoop (1.75) = 3.25
b)1/2 as much as the smallest scoop holds.
1.two large scoops (5) - two medium scoops (3.5) - one small scoop (1.0) = 0.5
2.two medium scoops (3.5) - three small scoops (3) = 0.5
if u have ne suggestions plz comment
