### Mackenzie's second growing post

*Question # 1: Solve all three parts of the problem below.**Jack collects baseball cards. Jack has 180 baseball cards in his collection. At the end of each month Jack buys 25 baseball cards to add to his collection.**A) Create a T-chart showing how many baseball cards Jack has at the end of the next four months.*

*B) Create an algebraic formula based upon the problem above.*

*c) If Jack just turned 8 years old this month and Jack continues to buy the smae amout of baseball cards each month, how many baseball cards will Jack have when he turns 12?*

*180+25(M) There are 12 months in a year. It will take 4 years for Jack to turn 12. so 4*12= 48= the variable.*

*180+25(48)= 180+1200=1380*

*When Jack turns 12 he will have 1,380 baseball cards.*

*Question # 2: Use the Chart to figure out the questions below.*

*Jakie is planning on having a pizza party with some of her friends. She is trying to figure out how many pizza's to order. She knows that each pizza has six slices of pizza.*

*A) If Jakie thinks that there will be four people at the party (counting herself) how many pizza's should she order?*

*Jackie should order 3 pizza's because each person eats 3 slices each.*

*B) If two more people show up at the party how many more pizza's does she need to order?*

*If two more people show up at her party she needs to order 1 more pizza.*

*Question # 3: Answer the questions below based upon this information.*

*Kathy has $20 in her savings account. Each month she adds another $15 to her savings account. In order to calculate how much money she will have in one year Kathy has created the algebraic formula: 20 + 15n= savings amount*

*A) Calculate how much money Kathy will have in one year.*

*20 + 15(12)= 20 + 180=200 In one year Kathy will have $200 in her savings account.*

*B) Suppose Kathy counted wrong and she really has $25 in her account instead of $20. Change the algebraic formula to reflect this miscalculation.*

*25 +15n= savings amount*

Great job Mackenzie and I plan to add this post to the hall of fame if you can make a few small corrections/changes.

What does your variable stand for in 1b?

How did you get your answers to 2a and 2b? plus I think you might have a mistake.

Great job otherwise. I really liked your other diagrams and the use of colour!

this is a wonderful growing post and it has been added to the hall of fame. Your mark is 18/17

Mackenzie I thought your work was wonderful. I was impressed with your ability to explain your answers and show your work with graphics. Nice Job!!

I shared a link to your solutions in my blog. My class will be viewing your page and they will see what a great job you did. You can view my blog comments MrsLWalls1
