Apply simple linear proportions, including ordering fractions



I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions

Please complete these two problems. You will need to explain how you got the answer.

Question 1
In our household, there are twice as many cats as humans, with sixty legs in total.

How many cats are there to be fed?
12
I figured out this answer by working out the ratio of cats to humans which was two to one, after that I  worked out the leg ratio which was eight to two I then worked out the percentage of human legs to cat legs and then added it to the total number of sixty.


Question 2
Three men run a business together.
The proportion of the profit they each get at the end of the month is based on the proportion of the funds they have invested in the business.
The April profit is shared out so that Al gets one third, Bob gets one half and Chuck gets one sixth.
In May, Des joins the group, investing half as much as Bob inves
What share of the profit can Des expect to get?

1/4

I worked out that Des get ¼ because bob has half of the profit so if you split ½ in half you get ¼

Dance excellene #5

This week we started dance, our teacher is called Dean he is a really good dancer at the start I really wasn't looking foward to it but he made it alot of fun. We always start of by getting in girl and boy lines then he goes over what we practised the day before. He will then teach us new moves. We are doing two dances Jive and hip hop. I personally like hip hop better. On Friday we got taught this new move it is called the running man it is probably the hardest move we have done yet but I really like it because it challenges me.

The care value I showed was excellence because I challenged myself and didn't give up with the running man.

This week at librarian Johanna and I put away the books in a flash because there wasn't many, then we went onto the desk to get and return peoples books thats my favourite part of doing librarian duty. When the line died down I went over to the computers to check out what books I still have to read for the forty book challenge I saw I still needed to read historical fiction so I asked Dabok if she had any suggestions because she has already read two books form that genre she suggested a book to me so I got it out.

The care value I showed was: Active thinking because when I didnt know what book to read for historical fiction I asked someone who was more than happy to help.

E6. Plan a holiday (minimum of two nights away) for your family. Prepare a budget for travel, accommodation and activities.

This week I decided to do this home learning challenge because Ed Sheeran is doing a tour we decided to go to Melbourne as we have been wanting to go shopping there for a while. My budget for Mum and I for this trip is $2,981 +$150 a day for food and $200 for public transport plus shopping $$$. We will depart chrischurch at 4:00pm on Thrusday 8th of March 2018 and we will arrive back on Monday the 12th at 11:55. The Thursday we get there we will pretty much do nothing apart get some dinner we will be staying at the Rydges then the next day ( Friday ) we will go shopping at the city centre which will be alot of fun especially since my best friend and her mum are also coming on the trip, later that night we will go to the Eureka skydeck in southbank which is sort of like the sky tower in Auckland (here is a picture)

On Saturday we will wake up have some breackfast and head on the free tram to Victoria Market we will spend the majority of the day there we will have dinner later on then head back to the hotel to get ready for the Ed Sheeran concert. On the sunday we will go to the melbourne adventure park ( water park and theme park ) we will probably spend the whole day there when we get back we will just relax after a long day. The next day we will go to jumpdeck ( Trampoline arena) this will only cost $12 because my mum doesn't want to do it (she will be a spectater) we will spend the rest of the day packing up our stuff or shopping then later on head to the airport and come back to chrischurch. 

Airfares: $1,318.00
Accomadation: $1,177
Ed Sheeran concert: $320
Eureka skydeck: $44
Jumpdeck: $12
Adventure park: $84
Plus food, public transport and shopping.

The care value I showed was Active thinking because I researhed and planned this for the people going to Melbourne with me.

Band excellence #4

This week at band practice we all got really excited because we got told that we had a surpise but when we found out what it was we were a little disappointed ( It was a music folder ) We practised our song the whole time then when most people left Maddy and I asked if Mr Rule could play a waiata on the piano he could so we played along on the guitar with him it was alot of fun.

The care value I showed was: Clean up after yourself because we put all the stands ad chairs away were they came from.

Librarian excellence #4

This week Johanna got back from her holiday so we did library duty together we did it on Thursday instead of Wednesday this week because I had band on Wednesday. We started of by putting away all the books it took like five minutes because they were all picture books, I then went onto scanning books we have a system she scans I type its kinda cool.

The care value I showed was: Use your time wisely because I didn't muck around when putting the books away.

C6. Organise a collection of old toys and/or clothes for charity. Deliver it to your chosen charity yourself and take photos!

I decided to donate some old clothes that don't fit me and some shoes to the child cancer bins outside New World. They use the clothes for kids with cancer that can't afford new clothing and some of the clothes even get shipped over to papua new guinea for children to enjoy.Here are some photos of me taking them to the bins
I also donated hockey sticks (2) to Sockburn School because our hockey club got asked by Sockburn School to donate any shinpads balls sticks etc because they want to encourage there students to give hockey a go.

The care value I showed was: Be aware of others because I put the time and effert into caring for others.
