Question: 

How many chips would it take to have the same weight as a women's basketball using Doritos? Cheetos? Frito's? Lays?

Explanation

The point of this problem is to find how many different types of chips you can use  and get the same weight as a Women's size basketball. You do this by measuring the weight of a basketball. Then you find the weight of each different chip. You do this by taking the weight of each bag and dividing it by how many average chips are in each bag. Next, you divide the weight of the basketball by the weight of the chip to figure out how many chips you would need to have the same weight as a Women's size basketball. 

Way To Solve The Problem

1 Doritos Weight:   .08 oz


Doritos Bag Weight: 10 oz


Average # of Chips in Each Bag:  121 chips


Basketball Weight: 20 oz

1 Lay's Weight:   .05 oz


Lay's Bag Weight: 9.5 oz


Average # of Chips in Each Bag:  191 chips


Basketball Weight: 20 oz

1 Cheetos Weight:   .04 oz


Cheetos Bag Weight: 9 oz


Average # of Chips in Each Bag:  237 chips


Basketball Weight: 20 oz

1 Frito's Weight:   .03 oz


Frito's Bag Weight: 10.25 oz


Average # of Chips in Each Bag:  304 chips


Basketball Weight: 20 oz

Doritos: 


Doritos:

Equation:   20 oz / .08 oz = 250 chips


So, if you wanted to have a ball of Doritos that was the same weight as a Women's size basketball, you would have to have 250 chips. 






Lay's:

Equation: 20 oz / .05 oz = 400 chips


So, if you wanted to have a ball of Lay's that was the same weight as a Women's size basketball, you would have to have 400 chips.




Cheetos:

Equation: 20 oz / .04 oz = 500 chips


So, if you wanted to have a ball of Cheetos that was the same weight as a Women's size basketball, you would have to have 500 chips.



Frito's:

Equation: 20 oz / .03 oz = 666 chips


So, if you wanted to have a ball of Frito's that was the same weight as a Women's size basketball, you would have to have 666 chips. 




Doritos would be the best choice for this problem. This is true because you would only need 250 chips to have the same weight as a basketball.

Frito's would be the worst choice for the problem because you would have to have 666 chips to make a ball the same weight as a basketball.
