Math 302- Habits of Mind 1
For Habits of Mind Problem 1, we were given the ratios of carnations to daisies, roses to peonies, and peonies to carnations. We were asked to find the remaining ratios of flowers, which would be peonies to daisies, carnations to roses, and roses to daisies. Madison also wants to give her teacher a bouquet using appropriate ratios and whole flowers. So, for this question we were asked how many of each type of flower should be put in the bouquet. The ratios we were already given are represented in tables 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3

Following the same steps, we found that we had ratios comparing roses and daisies to carnations. We remembered when comparing carnations to daisies our ratio of 14:7 simplified to 2:1. Knowing this, we went to our table of carnations to roses (table 1.6) and went to the first even number, since odd numbers in a 2:1 ratio would make a half of a flower. Our first even ratio of carnations to roses was 50:12. Since our ratio of carnations to daisies is 2:1, an equivalent ratio to that would be 50:25. This would mean for every 50 carnations, we would have 12 roses and 25 daisies. With this information we were able to conclude our rose to daisy ratio is 12:25. Again, we are not able to simplify this ratio because the only common factor between 12 and 25 is 1. Below is table 1.7 showing more equivalent rose to daisy*…show more content…*

To start this problem, we began to look through each ratio chart to try to find a common number. After looking through each of the charts we noticed that each flower is compared to roses, and the even number 12 comes up many times for roses. After we found a common number, we could then find the correct ratio of flowers to be placed into the bouquet. We noticed for every 12 roses, we have 25 daisies, 50 carnations, and 20 peonies. When looking at these four numbers, we didn’t have the option to simplify because 25 only has the factor of 1 in common with each number. In order to check our answers we looked at various tables. We started with table 1.5 and saw when there is 25 daisies there are 20 peonies. Next, we looked at table 1.4, which is an additional version to table 1.1. Since our simplified ratio of carnations to daisies is 2:1, we should have double the amount of carnations to daisies in our bouquet, which we do with a 50:25 ratio. After comparing all of our ratio tables, we concluded the bouquet using appropriate ratios and only whole flowers should be 12 roses, 25 daisies, 50 carnations, and 20

The effect that those results give to the current feasible can change when roles do not apply on the positive area. Analysis/Discussion It was discovered that Michael and Thalia made a maximum profit of 87 and what was wasted at the end of the day was 11. If Michael and Tahlia didn’t have any posies left over, they would have sold it all to gain a high amount of income.

827 Words | 4 PagesWe will randomly choose two candles and referring the chart, we will determine the OHLC data of each candle. We picked two candles for 21st May and 25th June respectively. The candle for 21st May is in red color. Hence, we can have an idea that it’s a bearish candle. Therefore, the upper shadow will indicate the opening price and the lower shadow will indicate the closing price of the stock.

## Fat In Chips Lab Report

788 Words | 4 PagesThis could of happened because we might not have pressed all the petrol out of the chips and so as a result someof the petrol might have been left in the chips. Another thing is that not exactly 10g of chips might have been weighed out. Salt in popcorn: The expected salt content in 10g of popcorn was said to be 0.17 and we got 0.32 g which is a bit more than the expected amount. This could of happened because a bit more than 10 g of popcorn was added, someone with sweaty hands might have added extra bodily salts to the popcorn, or not all the water was squeezed out of the popcorn. Conclusion: In conclusion we did experiments to find out the salt and fat content in 10g of popcorn/chips.

## Isopod Case Study

1003 Words | 5 PagesAnalysis/Conclusion: The alternative hypothesis we developed is that when ten Isopods are placed between a syrup chamber and a water chamber, then the Isopods will gravitate towards the syrup chamber. The data fails to support our alternative hypothesis and fails to reject the null hypothesis because the chi squared is 3.6 and the critical value is 3.84. This is an indication of kinesis because the movement of the Isopods was determined by the data to be undirected. A source of error may be that at a few of the 30 second intervals several of the bugs were found in the middle between the two chambers and it was not possible to distinguish a correct environment for them. In future experimentation we would create a third column for data to mark the Isopods that are found in the middle at the 30 second intervals.

This insured the titrations would be a pale pink color rather than the bright pink color. To find the moles of KHP the mass was divided by the molar mass. The moles of KHP was then multiplied by the mole to mole ratio to get the moles of NaOH. The moles of NaOH was then divided by the liters of NaOH used to find the molarity, which was added to trial 2 then divided by 2 to find the average

## Essay On Composite Face

722 Words | 3 PagesThe Chi-Square test tests our null-hypothesis, composite faces are not more attractive that real faces and that the symmetricality of a composite face does not make it any more attractive that a real face.We will get that data for our Chi-Square test to test by creating slips of paper with two sets of pictures. One set will be of three real females and a composite face of their three faces, and the other will be three males and a composite face of their three faces. We will give those papers to 100 high school students, 50 girls and 50 boys, and record the results for which they thought were most attractive for the tests and conclude whether or not composite faces are more attractive, or if there is no true difference in the attractiveness between composite and real
