The first picture shows the expenses we estimated that Brightspark has to pay (expenses).

The second picture is what we need to do, make a table of values for the company’s revenue and expenses. After we are done, we will graph both patterns on graph paper.


Meatball Problem- Meatball Mathsters

We calculated the pots and meatballs seperately. We assumed that we were putting the chicken meatballs into the big pot, and the beef meatballs into the small pot.

We calculated the volume of each pot using the formula pi times radius squared multiplied by the depth, then subtracted the volume of the sauce (we used the same formula), and found the AV (available volume).

We then found the volume of each meatball by using the formula for a sphere: four-thirds pi radius cubed, then divided the available volume by the volume of an individual meatball to find the answer to the question: How many meatballs can you put in without the sauce overflowing?

MLSD Meatball Ratios Problem

Meatball Lunches Substitute Dinner (MLSD), consisting of littletardisgirl, Artorias, howaboutwetalk, and giftedblog87, present to you the ratio of meatball sauce in ml to meatballs. The background information is that one jar of sauce is used in the small pot and two jars in the big pot. The meatballs will be filled up to the brim of each pot, without the sauce overflowing.

As you can see, our conclusions are that, one, there can be 75 meatballs in the large pot and 40 meatballs in the small, and two, surprisingly enough, both pots had a ratio from ml of meatball sauce to meatballs of about 1.15 : 1.
