SOLUTION: Multiply the corresponding fractions, simplify as
necessary, and then determine if the statement is
true.
a. Let d represent the dolls that have both red hair
and green eyes.
Select one box from each row to describe how to
find the number of teaspoons of vanilla needed to
make n batches of cookies.
How many teaspoons of vanilla are needed to make
batches of cookies?
SOLUTION: Consider the relationship between 1 and
of Marjorie’s doll collection has both red hair and
green eyes, so the statement is true.
b. Let d represent the dolls that have both red hair
and blue eyes.
. This relationship must be the same between 2 and and
between each batch and amount of vanilla needed
for each batch.

the teaspoons of vanilla larger than the batches, but
the teaspoons of vanilla are smaller so it cannot be
addition
Subtraction:
of Marjorie’s doll collection has both red hair and
blue eyes, so the statement is true.
c. Let d represent the dolls that have both red hair
and brown eyes.
Since neither result in
, it cannot be subtraction.
