My Method to Solve the Problem… Student Blocks to School Blocks to School & Back Lara 10 20 Chan 8 16 Jason 5 10 Marla 2 4

20 (LARA) + 16 (CHAN) + 10 (JASON) + 4 (MARLA) = 50 TOTAL BLOCKS LARA = 20/50 = 2/5 (SIMPLIFIED) CHAN = 16/50 = 8/25 (SIMPLIFIED) JASON = 10/50 = 1/5 (SIMPLIFIED) MARLA = 4/50 = 2/25 (SIMPLIFIED) My Method to Solve the Problem

My Method to Solve this Problem  As I started this problem I determined how many blocks each person was in the car. I figured it out for a one way trip and a to school and back. I compared this problem to the fraction unit we did earlier in the year and also the ratio and proportion unit. I figured out the part for each of the students in the car compared to the whole. I created fractions for each of the students to represent their time in the car. I simplified each of the fractions. I knew that the total cost was \$300 so I used \$300 and multiplied it by the fraction of each student to get my total cost per kid. I figured this is a fair to split the cost because if you are in the car longer you should pay more and if you are in the car less you should pay less.
