Tape Diagram Problems
Tape diagrams are best used to model
ratios when the two quantities have the
same units.
Tape Diagrams: Q1

1. David and Jason have marbles in a
ratio of 2:3. Together, they have a total of
35 marbles. How many marbles does
each boy have?
Tape Diagrams : Q2
 2.
The ratio of boys to girls in the class is
5:7. There are 36 children in the class. How
many more girls than boys are there in the
class?
Tape Diagrams Q3:
Comparing
3
items
Lisa, Megan and Mary were paid \$120
for babysitting in a ratio of 2: 3: 5. How
much less did Lisa make than Mary?
Tape Diagrams Q4: Different
Ratios
The ratio of Patrick’s M & M’s to Evan’s is 2: 1
and the ratio of Evan’s M & M’s to Michael’s
is 4: 5. Find the ratio of Patrick’s M & M’s to
Michael’s.
Tape Diagrams Q5: Changing
Ratios
The ratio of Abby’s money to Daniel’s is 2: 9.
Daniel has \$45. If Daniel gives Abby \$15,
what will be the new ratio of Abby’s money
to Daniel’s?
Double Number Line
Double number line diagrams are best used when the quantities
have different units. Double number line diagrams can help make
visible that there are many, even infinitely many, pairs of numbers in
the same ratio—including those with rational number entries. As in
tables, unit rates (R) appear in the pair (R, 1).
Double Number Line:
Finding average rate

It took Megan 2 hours to complete 3 pages of
math homework. Assuming she works at a
constant rate, if she works for 8 hours, how many
pages of math homework will she complete? What
is the average rate at which she works?

A-REI.4. Solve quadratic equations in one variable.
a) Use the method of completing the square to transform any quadratic equation in x into an
equation of the form (x – p)2 = q that has the same solutions. Derive the quadratic formula from
this form.
b) Solve quadratic equations by inspection (e.g., for x2 = 49), taking square roots, completing the
square, the quadratic formula, and factoring, as appropriate to the initial form of the equation.
Recognize when the quadratic formula gives complex solutions and write them as a  bi for real
numbers a and b.
Alignment: Most Relevant Mathematical Practice(s)
Students taking a brute-force approach to this task will need considerable symbolic fluency to obtain
the solutions. In this sense, the task rewards looking for and making use of structure (MP.7).

High School Illustrative Item Key Features and Assessment Advances
The given equation is quadratic equation with two solutions. The task does not clue the
student that the equation is quadratic or that it has two solutions; students must recognize
the nature of the equation from its structure. Notice that the terms 6x – 4 and 3x – 2 differ
only by an overall factor of two. So the given equation has the structure
2 = 2
where Q is 3x – 2. The equation Q2 - 2Q is easily solved by factoring as Q(Q-2) = 0, hence Q =
0 or Q = 2. Remembering that Q is 3x – 2, we have
3 − 2 = 0 or 3 − 2 = 2.
These two equations yield the solutions 23 and 43.
Unlike traditional multiple-choice tests, the technology in this task prevents guessing and
working backwards. The format somewhat resembles the Japanese University Entrance
Examinations format (see innovations in ITN Appendix F). A further enhancement is that the
item format does not immediately indicate the number of solutions.
