In conclusion, our group found two ways to calculate
the number of mice for any given number of rats.
First, we chose to make a table of the information.
From there, we were able to write an equation
that would work for any given number.
We determined that we would divide the given number of rats by 5,
multiply that by 2 and then multiply that quantity by 8.
This would give you the number of mice.
It works for any given number of rats.
We have attached our two charts
and the equation we created so that you could have a picture
of what we were talking about.
