Where the Sidewalk Ends

Today in the Afternoon classes we went outside and measured the sidewalk from one green x to the next.  You were asked to find a measurement for this distance.

What was the distance between the two x's?
What method did you use to measure the distance?
What did you use to calculate your answer (tools used)?

Leave a comment behind with your answer.  Please ensure that your room number is there too.  (i.e. Carlo 816)

me and my friends got 8400cm.we got this answer by counting how many times the ruler fit in one cement square on the ground. we counted 80 squares so then we added the amount of cm on the ruler for every cement square it was 105cm every square so we x 80x105 to equal up to 8400cm.

me and my partner got 11250cm. the way we did it was, we mesured one block of the sidewalk. One block equaled to 144cm, then we counted the rest of the blocks and we counted 80. Then we multiplyed 80X144 and we got 11250cm.

This paragraph is going to be about how long the side walk is. My partner and I used a ruler to measure the distance of the side walk. What we did was measure one of the cement squares, and one of the cement squares is 120cm. Then what we did was count how many cement blocks there are, and there were 80 cement blocks. So multiplied 120cm with 80, and we got 9600 cm.

Where The Sidewalk Ends

The method we used for finding the distance was measuring one block of cement. One of them was around 140 cm, but we measured another block and it ended up being in the 130's, so we went in between the two numbers and used 135 cm. Now that we have the measurement of the block we counted how much blocks were in between the two x's and we found out there was 80. After we multiplied 135 by 80 and retrieved an answer of 10,800. The tools we used to retrieve our answer was a calculator.

Where the Sidewalk Ends

This paragraph will consist of the explanation about getting the distance between the two x's. The tools mainly used for this assignment was a 30cm ruler and also a calculator. As you may know side walks are divided into squares, and so my partner and I first measured one square which equaled to 144cm. Our next step was to count how many squares there were in between the two x's and we got the conclusion of 80 squares. After that we simply multiplied 80 and 144 and got an approximate answer of 11 520 cm. And that is how we measured the distance between the two x's.

Me and my partner measured the tiles on the sidewalk to get a value on each tile then we got 150cm on each tile, then we counted it and we got 79 then we multiplied it by 150 and we got 11850cm.

The distance between the two x-es was approximately 10800 cm. Hannah, Jackie and I decided to measure one block. The length of the one block was 140 cm. After, we counted 80 blocks between the two x-es. When we were just about to go in to calculate our answer, we decided to check the length of a different block just in case the weren't the same measurements. The second block we measured was about 130 cm, so we went with 135 cm to balence it out. We multiplied the two numbers ( 80x135 ) to get our answer of 10800 cm. What helped us get this answer was using 3 30cm rulers and a calculator.

Where the Sidewalk Ends

The distance between the 2 green x's is approximately 10800 cm. Since the sidewalk was divided into blocks, to measure the distance, we measured one block with a 30 cm ruler. It was approximately 135 cm. We then counted how many blocks were between the 2 green x's. There were 80 blocks. Using a calculator we multiplied 135 by 80. (135x80=10800)

The distance that my partner and I came up with was 11,600 cm. What we did was we measured one square of the sidewalk with a ruler and got 145 cm. We then counted how many sidewalk-squares there were in between the two X's. There were 80 squares. After that we multiplied 145 by 80 with a calculator and we got 11,600 cm. The tools used were a ruler (30 cm) and a calculator.

Where the Sidewalk ends

Today in math class, we were asked to measure the distance of two x's on the sidewalk. My partner and I used a calculator and a ruler. First of all, we measured one tile which was 150 cm.. Second, we counted how many tiles there were from our starting point to the finish point. We counted the large tiles as two single tiles so we got 79 tiles. After that, we multiplied our first measurement which was 150 cm. to the number of tiles which was 79 and the answer was
11 850cm..

what my partner and I did was that we used a ruler. We saw the marks on the ground and 5 rulers to fill up the 1 mark to another so we counted the spaces between the marks, for an example 20 x 150(30 x 5 = 150).
Our answer is about 1100 cm.

My partner and I got 6456 inches. Our methode was to measure how much inches was the first cement square. Then we counted how much squares that was on the ground. After we multipled 56 inches by 80, then we added 80 inches more because on cement square was 80 inches. Finally we got 6456 inches as our answer.

For the assignment my group got 11040 cm from 1 x to the other. we got the answer by counting how many times a ruler can fit onto one cement block. we then counted how many blocks from one x to the other and we counted 80.
we multiplied the number of blocks to how many centimeters are in one block and we got 11040. to do that we used a ruler and a calculator.

My group and I came up with the answer 11,040 cm. We got this answer by measuring 1 block of the sidewalk. It was 138 cm. Then, we counted the blocks altogether and there was 80 in total. So in order for us to get the answer, we multiplied 138 cm and 80 cm together. 138 cm x 80 cm is 11,040. That's how we got the answer.

My group and I measured one block on the sidewalk. One block was equal to 5 rulers (also 150cm). We then skip counted by 5 for every block that was part of the sidewalk (X to the other X). We got to 400. So it would take 400 rulers to get from the first X to the other one. We multiplied 400 by 30 because 1 ruler is 30cm. So 400x30= 12000cm.

My partner and I got cm. We did it by measuring one block of the sidewalk. 2 rulers = 60 cm. Approx. 3 rulers and 26cm fit into one cement block (which equals 105 cm.) Then, we counted 80 cement blocks. So, we multiplied 116cmx80=9280cm.
9280 is your answer.

The distance between the 2x's is approximately 11,040. Since the sidewalk was divided into blocks, we measured the distance of one block with a 30 cm ruler. Which was 138 cm long. Then, we counted how many blocks were in between the 2x's. There was 80 blocks. By using a calculator we multiplied 135 by 80, which gave us the answer of 11,040.

Me and my friend got 12,420cm we got that by measuring the normal size concretes and counting how there are.We counted 77 normal size concrete,after that,we multiplied the amount of the concrete by the size (150cm) of it.But not all the concretes are the same size so me and my friend measured the big concretes and we got 290cm. After knowing that the big concretes are 290cm in length ,we then multiplied it by 3 because that's the number of the big concretes.The tools we used is a 30cm ruler and a calculator.

The results to our calculations were 16,480 centimetres. We first used our method of using our 30 cm rulers and used it to find out how many centimetres there are in a one sidewalk block. It equaled 206 cm. After this, we counted the sidewalk blocks from the distance of the two x's and there were 80, so we multiplied 206 x 80, and got our answer of 16,480 cm. The tools we used from this process was our rulers, and calculators.

My partner and I came up with answer: 10,959 cm. Rounded to the nearest thousandth: 11,000.

Our strategy was that we measured my shoe and it was about 27.5 cm long. (we used my shoe so it would be a bit quicker) So I measured how many steps it would take to fill in 1 concrete block. We got 5 steps per block.

So 5 times 27.5 = 137.5

But there was a tiny bit more space to be filled so we measured that space and got 3cm and added that to 137.5 which equalled 140.5

Then we counted how many blocks were in between the 2 x's. We got around 78 blocks including the big ones.

So we calculated 140.5 times 78 and it equalled to 10959.
The tools that we used were a ruler, my shoe, a calculator, and our brains.

after we measured the 1st block we counted all the blocks from one end to the other end and we got 80 blocks all in all

after we counted the blocks we multiplied the measurement of the first block and the total of blocks all in all and the answer we got is 13,760

My partner and I got 11872 cm. The method we used to measure the distance was to measure each box with a ruler. The 1st box and the last box was a different measurement then all the boxes in the middle. So what we did was measure the first box which was 172 cm, then the second box. The second box were the same size as all the one's leading to the middle of the sidewalk (30 boxes each 150cm, 150x30=4500cm.) So we counted every box until we got to the middle. 2 middle boxes were a different measurement so we measured both and got 120 cm. After that, we counted all the boxes from the middle until the last box (45 boxes each 150cm, 150x45=6750.) The last box was 210 cm. 4500+6750=11250, 172cm(first box)+240cm(2 middle boxes)+210cm(last box)= 622. 11250+622=11872. What we used to calculate our answer is a calculator.

My partner and I came up with an answer of 10,959 cm. we used my partners shoe and it was about 27.5 cm long. Si we measured how many steps it would be to fill in 1 concrete block (each step is 27.5cm). We got about 5 steps per block so 27.5 times 5 = 137.5. But there was a tiny space still in the block and it was 3cm long so we just added it to make it 140.5 per concrete block. Then we counted all the concrete blocks (including the big ones) and we came up with around 78 blocks. So our final calculation was 140.5 times 78 and the answer equaled to 10,959cm.

My partner and I measured green x to green x and we got 12160cm. We got the answer by measuring one cement using 30 cm ruler. Each cement contains 152 centimeters. After that, we counted how many cements are there between the 2 green Xs. There are 80 cements. Some cements are longer than the others, so we just doudle the cement. We multiplied the number of the cements, wich is 80 to how long the cements are, 152 cm.
So. . 80 x 152 is equal to 12160. And thats how we got the answer. The tools we used are calculator, 3 30cm rulers and our brains.

My partner and I got 12117cm. We got this answer by measuring the sidewalk using a ruler. Since not all blocks have the same sizes we measured the bigger blocks first and we got 945cm(all 4 blocks have different sizes). Then, the rest of the 76 blocks have all the same sizes. The size of a regular block is 147cm x 76 which equals to 11172cm.We used a calculator and a 38cm ruler.

Me and my partner measured one block with 5,30cm rulers and needed a extra ruler which only took 18cm. So we multiplied 30 by 5 which equaled to 150 and added the extra 18 cm which is 168cm in total. We then counted how many blocks there were and we got 75 and multiplied it by 168 and we got 12,600 cm.

My partner and I got 11872cm. The method we used to measure the distance between one X to the other was using a ruler, we measured the first and last box, the 2 middle boxes, and measured one other box and counted how many there were of them, then multiplied those together. We did that because they werent all the exact same size. So then we measured the first box and got 172cm, then the last box and got 210cm. We also measured the 2 middle boxes and got 240cm, so we added all those up and got 622cm. So then we counted how many boxes were left and there was 75 all together. 75x150=11250cm, and we added 622 to that and got 11872!

The tools we used were a ruler and a calculator.

The distance between 2 x's are 8268 cm. I walked from one x to the other and counted how many step I took. I took 156 steps from one x to the other. Then I measured how big my steps are, and they were about 53 cm long. I multiplied 156 by 53 and it equals 8268 cm.

I was working in a group and we got (≈) 12 000 cm. Started out as this: we took our rulers and decided to find out how many rulers fit into one square. It was 5 rulers which equal to 150cm (1 ruler = 30 cm). We were skip counting by every square we would add 5 to the last number (5,10,15). Until we finished at the other end where we got 400 (rulers)so we multiplied 400 by 30 to see how many cm there were and we got 12 000 cm.

~The distance between the two x's is 12,080 cm
~The method I used to measure the distance is
-I collected all the information I had. One block square is 151 cm. Since there is 80 squares in total between the two x's, I multiplied 150 to 80 which is equal to 12,080 cm.
~The tools I used to calculate my answers is a calculator
