  4. 4. Slappy Burger reports that 8% of thepeople in the U.S. eat at its restaurantseach day. Slappy Burger currently has 12,800 stores in the U.S.The most recent Census Bureau report states that approximately 310 million people live in the U.S.
  5. 5. Make a conjecture as to whether or not you believe the report from Slappy Burger to be accurate information.Create a mathematical argument that validates your conclusion.

  16. 16. • 8% of the people in the U.S.• 12,800 stores in the U.S.• 310 million people live in the U.S.
  17. 17. • Make a conjecture• Whether or not you• Mathematical argument thatvalidates your conclusion
  18. 18. How many people?• 8% of the people in the U.S.• 310 million people live in the U.S. What is 8% of 310 Million? 310 Million 8%
  19. 19. = 100% By310 Million estimating, I know that 31 million is 10% of 310 = 8% million. ?
  20. 20. = 100% = 8% 310 Million ?310,000,000 x .08 = 24.8 million
  21. 21. = 100% = 8% 310 Million 24.8 million310,000,000 x .08 = 24.8 million
  22. 22. How many people per 12,800 store? 24,800,000 / 12,800 =310 Million 1937.5 people per store per day
  23. 23. Is this accurate?1937 Stores open from 6 AM-10 PM 16 Hours12,800
  24. 24. Is this accurate?1937 1937 / 16 = 121 people per hour (2 people per12,800 minute)
  25. 25. Is this accurate?1937 2 people per minute 4-6 cash registers & Drive Thru12,800
  26. 26. Is this accurate?1937 The numbers provided by Slappy Burger seem accurate.12,800
