Thanksgiving is tomorrow! You still need to buy a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. You go to the store to find a turkey that weighs at least 200 ounces. The turkey you find weighs fifteen pounds. How many ounces are in a pound? How many ounces does the turkey weigh? Go to http://www.cleavebooks.co.uk/scol/cclboz.htm if you need help converting the measurements. Type the number of pounds in the
first blank next to the word “pounds.” Then, click on the “[Calculate It]”
button. Is the fifteen pound turkey at least 200 ounces? Record your answers in your notebook.
The turkey costs ten cents per ounce. How much does the turkey
cost? You get in line to buy the turkey and realize you only have
twenty-five dollars in your wallet. Do you have enough money?
