# Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates’ explanations of their equations, graphs, and solutions.

## Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

- What are the variables in this situation?
- How does the form of your equation relate to the form of the formula for a proportional relationship?
- If you wrote a general formula, what would it be? How would it help you?
- Where is the percent sales tax in your formula? How did you decide to change the percent to that value?
- How did you figure out how to make your graph? Can you explain the steps you took?
