Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Part A: Isaac is not sure how many sandwiches he will be able to make. Write an expression with a variable that represents the amount of meat Isaac needs for his sandwiches. Identify what the variable represents. Part B: If Isaac has 18 ounces of meat, how many sandwiches can he make? Create an equation and show all work to solve it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, lets do it together:) We will name the amount of meat ounces, x. And the number of sandwitches is y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, if you have y number of sandwiches, then you will need three times as many ounces (x) of meat. (because you need 3 ounces per sandwich) This way we can model the function `y=x•⅓` Where x is the number of ounces of meat, and y is the number of sandwitches.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I helped you to model the function for the sandwiches. Then you plgged in x=18, to find y=6 (i.e. 18 ounces of meat= 6 sandwiches)
