Sat. June 17: I added all the students then divided: 888 / 2 = 444
The fractions add up to less than 1, so the recipe is between 5 and 6 cups. I would use the blue bowl.
4 times the recipe is
6+5+4+4+4= 23 cups
I added 1.25+0.75+1.25+0.75+0.75+0.99

In this picture, we added the quarter miles then multiplied by 177.
You could also multiply 0.25 miles by 177 x 2 = 354 trips.
Both answers are equal to 88.5 miles.
I also added 1/4 + 1/4=1/2. Multiplying by 1/2 can be calculated by dividing by 2
177 / 2 = 88 1/2

You could see one calculation in this picture.
Or, convert the numbers into decimals, so that 1.9 miles x 0.3 miles = 0.57 miles.
I broke it into a rectangle that was 1 mile by 0.3 miles and .9 miles by 0.3 miles. So, the total area is 0.3 square miles and 0.27 square miles.

There are many ways to solve this one. We showed how to calculate the total costs and then subtract. OR, you could just multiply the difference in costs by the number purchased.
Here is our work: https://www.facebook.com/edmeApps/photos/a.387153365015915.1073741833.188872738177313/387153611682557/?type=3&theater
I got the same answers using my calculator to multiply
