As an extension to yesterday’s Nuptuville problem, we created our own towns and made these welcome signs. There are a few with calculation errors like the green one on the top right. Some students started with their population and worked backwards to find their ratios, like the one on the top left. They often ended up with ratios that didn’t look very “friendly” even when in simplest form.
My favorite though is Maluville–the one on the bottom. 1/1 of the men are married to 1/199 of the women!! Oh, my!!
