yes mom, but let me get changed.
Are you ready to go, Grace
Elizabeth, her sister, explains that she needs to make 3 pies for her 11 teammates and coach so that each of them get 1/4 of a pie.
She thinks of how to triple her ingredients. she starts with sugar, the original recipe calls for 1/4 of sugar so she multiplies it by 3 to get 3/4 of sugar
diving out pie
Grace's mom asks if she is ready to go
I taste some cinnamon,how much did you put in
We played are game really well,but Grace was to excited to give out her pie
Grace then divides the pie with her 11 teammates and coach. They each get 1/4 of the pie because she divided the three pies by 12/1 to get 3/12 which is the same as 1/4
I have pies
Grace's teammate tastes some cinnamon so Grace explains how each of the 12 pieces pie have 2/3 of a teaspoon of cinnamon. Then Grace divides the 12 pieces by 2/3 to get 36/2 which equals 18. She put 18 teaspoons of cinnamon in all.
about 18 teaspoons because each piece has 2/3 of it
