Question: Sam saved $32 in 4 weeks. He saved the same amount of money each week How much did he save a week? Need to know how to answer in model method form.
Step 1: This question involves the Division Concept. Since Sam saved $32 in 4 weeks, we draw 4 boxes to represent the total amount of money he saved and draw a long bracket on top to show that the total saved is $32. Thus 1 box must be equivalent to the amount of money saved in a week.
From the model,
4 units ---------- $32
1 unit ---------- $32 / 4 = $8
Therefore, he saved $8 a week.
