## Texas Go Math Grade 5 Lesson 16.2 Answer Key Analyze Dot Plots

**Unlock the Problem**

You can identify the greatest and least numbers in a set of data on a dot plot.

Example 1

Members of a hiking club made a dot plot of the distances they hiked. What is the greatest distance they hiked? What is the least distance?

The greatest number on the number line that has a dot above it is ___.

So, the greatest distance they hiked is ___ kilometers.

The least number on the number line that has a dot above it is ___.

So, the least distance they hiked is ___ kilometers.

Answer:

The greatest number on the number line that has a dot above it is 9.5.

So, the greatest distance they hiked is 9.5 kilometers.

The least number on the number line that has a dot above it is 7.0.

So, the least distance they hiked is 7.0 kilometers.

The difference between the greatest and least numbers in a group is the range. What is the range of distances the hiking club hiked?

Subtract the least distance from the greatest distance.

___ km – ___ km = ___ km

The difference between the greatest and least distances

is ___ kilometers.

So, the range is ___ kilometers.

Answer:

The least distance from the greatest distance is 9.5 – 7.0 = 2.5 km.

The difference between the greatest and least distances is 2.5 kilometers.

The range is 2.5 km.

Explain why 10.0 kilometer not used to find the range.

Example 2.

Solve a multi-step problem.

A breakfast chef uses three different amounts of milk when making pancakes, depending on the number of pancakes ordered. The dot plot shows customers’ orders for pancakes one morning. How much milk does the chef need to make all the pancakes?

Step 1 Find the number of orders for pancakes that use each amount of milk.

___ dots above \(\frac{1}{4}\): ___ orders that use \(\frac{1}{4}\) cup of milk

___ dots above \(\frac{1}{2}\): ___ orders that use \(\frac{1}{2}\) cup of milk

___ dots above \(\frac{3}{4}\): ___ orders that use \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of milk

Answer:

2 dots above \(\frac{1}{4}\): 2 orders that use \(\frac{1}{4}\) cup of milk.

4 dots above \(\frac{1}{2}\): 4 orders that use \(\frac{1}{2}\) cup of milk.

2 dots above \(\frac{3}{4}\): 2 orders that use \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of milk.

Explanation:

Here, there are 2 dots above \(\frac{1}{4}\) and 2 orders that use \(\frac{1}{4}\) cup of milk.

Here, there are 4 dots above \(\frac{1}{4}\) and 4 orders that use \(\frac{1}{4}\) cup of milk.

Here, there are 2 dots above \(\frac{3}{4}\) and 2 orders that use \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of milk.

Step 2

Find the amount of milk needed for the orders that use each amount of milk.

\(\frac{1}{4}\) × ___ = ___ cup

\(\frac{1}{2}\) × ___ = ___ cup

\(\frac{3}{4}\) × ___ = ___ cup

Answer:

The amount of milk needed for the orders that use each amount of milk is \(\frac{1}{2}\) cup, 2 cups and \(\frac{3}{2}\) cup.

Explanation:

The amount of milk needed for the orders that use each amount of milk is

\(\frac{1}{4}\) × 2 = \(\frac{1}{2}\) cup.

\(\frac{1}{2}\) × 4 = 2 cups.

\(\frac{3}{4}\) × 2 = \(\frac{3}{2}\) cup.

Step 3

Add to find the total amount of milk.

___ cup + ___ cups + ___ cups = __ cups

So, the chef needs ____ cups of milk to make all the pancakes.

Answer:

The total amount of milk is 4 cups.

So, the chef needs 4 cups of milk to make all the pancakes.

Explanation:

The total amount of milk is \(\frac{1}{2}\) + 2 + \(\frac{3}{2}\)

= \(\frac{1+4+3}{2}\)

= \(\frac{8}{2}\)

= 4 cups.

So, the chef needs 4 cups of milk to make all the pancakes.

Question 6.

**H.O.T. Multi-Step** For 10 straight days, Samantha measured the amount of food that her cat Dewey ate, recording the results on a dot plot. What is the total amount of food that Dewey ate?

a. What do you need to know?

Answer:

We need to know the total amount of food Dewey ate.

b. What steps could you use to find the total amount of food that Dewey ate?

Answer:

First we will add the totals of each amount measured and then we will add those amount.

c. Fill in the blanks for the totals of each amount measured.

Answer:

The totals of each amount measured is

\(\frac{1}{4}\) cup = \(\frac{1}{4}\) × 2

= \(\frac{1}{2}\) cup.

\(\frac{3}{8}\) cup = \(\frac{3}{8}\) × 1

= \(\frac{3}{8}\) cup.

\(\frac{1}{2}\) cup = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 3

= \(\frac{3}{2}\) cups.

\(\frac{5}{8}\) cup = \(\frac{5}{8}\) × 3

= \(\frac{15}{8}\) cups.

\(\frac{3}{4}\) cup = \(\frac{3}{4}\) × 1

= \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup.

d. Find the total amount of cat food eaten over 10 days.

___ + ___ + ___ + ____ + __ = ___

So, Dewey ate ___ of cat food.

Answer:

Dewey ate 5 cups of cat food.

Explanation:

The total amount of cat food eaten over 10 days is

\(\frac{1}{2}\) + \(\frac{3}{8}\) + \(\frac{3}{2}\) + \(\frac{15}{8}\) + \(\frac{3}{4}\)

= \(\frac{4+3+12+15+6}{8}\)

= \(\frac{40}{8}\)

= 5 cups.
