Hi Katy, Thank you, but my shop is not doing so well with sales.
Is there anything I can help you with Martin?
Actually there is! Each week I should be selling 4,000 cupcakes. On Saturday I sold 1,275. On Sunday I sold 122. Can you help me figure how much I should sell the rest of the week to reach my weekly goal?
I can help you compute the difference Martin.
Gee thanks Katy.
I like to use a bar model to help me compute problems. Here is one for your problem.
left to reach goal ? UNKNOWN
The operations that can help you are addition and subtraction. Your equation would look like this... 4,000- (1,275+122)= ? You need 2,603 cupcakes to reach your goal.
Martin, are you sure this is your "thing"? You know, "Selling cupcakes?"
Uh, okay. Talk to you later. Good luck with that. The cupcakes or UBER.
Well, I did see a Want Ad in the paper for UBER drivers.
