To solve the problem from the previous page, you need to carry out the plan from Example 1 and then check the answer. Solving and Looking Back Example 2 Jodie has made of her free throws. Maria has made, or about 0.286, of her free throws. Increase Maria’s free throws taken and made by 1. Then find the fraction of her free throws made. Record your results in a table. Keep increasing her free throws until her fraction is greater than 0.4. SOLVE THE PROBLEM 21 6 0.4 = 15 6

ANSWER Maria needs to make 5 free throws in a row to have a greater fraction of free throws made than Jodi. Solving and Looking Back Example 2

Solving and Looking Back Example 2 LOOK BACK After Maria makes 4 free throws in a row, she has the same fraction of free throws made as Jodi. So, it is reasonable that if she makes her next shot, she will have a greater fraction of free throws made than Jodi.

Guided Practice for Example 2 ANSWER 5 free throws 3. WHAT IF? In Example 2, suppose Maria misses her first free throw and now has made 6 of her 22 free throws. How many free throws in a row does she need to make to exceed Jodi’s fraction of free throws made?

Guided Practice for Example 2 ANSWER 53 min 4. PHONE CALLS A phone card charges \$2 for the first 20 minutes and \$.05 for each extra minute. One call costs \$3.65. How long was the call?
