Camille's Growing Post #2

Hi Mr. Reece.
Can you please check my growing post again because I change some of it. You can see it in color Black.
Thank you!!!
Have a nice day!!!

Question #1.) Solve all 3 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 4 months.

b)Create an algebraic formula based upon the problem above

n stands for number




280 baseball cards

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

c stands for cards




1,380 Baseball cards

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

Jackie 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 Jackie thinks that there will be four people at the party (counting herself) how many pizza’s should she order?

Jackie needs to order 2 box of pizza if she have 4 friends that are coming at the party (plus her) beacause if you look at the chart at the top you will see #4 it says 12. Each box has 6 slices. Then devide 12 into 6, it will give you 2 boxes.

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

Jackie needs to order 1 more box of pizza if her two friends will show up at the party because if you look at the chart, you will see #6 and it says 18. Divide 6 into 18, it will give you 3 boxes.

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 this algebraic formula: 20 + 15n = Savings amount

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

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

Very well done. few minor suggestions. What does "n" stand for in 1b., how about "c" in 1c.

How did you get your answers in 2a and 2b, show your work.

Great job overall
