Ok so in class this is what our teacher had us do....
1.Pick a number to represent the number of times you would like to have chocolate in a week (more than once, but less than 10 times).
2.Double this amount (just to be bold).
3.Add 5.
4.Multiply the result by 50.
5.If you have already had your birthday this year, add 1766. If you haven’t yet had your birthday, add 1765.
6.Now, subtract the four digit year you were born.
7. Your result is a three digit number. The first digit is the number of times you chose to have chocolate in a week and the next two
After that she gave us an assignment. The homework assignment is to...
1. Develop an algebraic expression to model the steps we went through
2.Justify why this “worked” the way it did.Basically why does the number you pick have to be greater than 1 and less than 10?
