Crazy Cake Consumption - College Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:05
    So far we've talked about a lot of
    numbers, both positive and negative, and
  • 0:05 - 0:09
    our world of numbers is looking pretty
    great. Still, we've really only been
  • 0:09 - 0:14
    counting by ones, whether above or below
    0. This might be a problem however.
  • 0:14 - 0:19
    Thinking back to your famous birthday
    party, what if your friend had baked a few
  • 0:20 - 0:25
    cakes instead of making a ton of cupcakes?
    If you asked someone how much cake they
  • 0:25 - 0:29
    wanted and they only knew about integers,
    they would have to say that they either
  • 0:29 - 0:34
    wanted no cake at all, or they wanted 1
    whole cake, or maybe even 2 entire cakes.
  • 0:34 - 0:39
    This doesn't seem very practical and
    you'll also run out of cake very quickly.
  • 0:39 - 0:44
    You would probably want to cut each cake
    into slices and then give each person just
  • 0:44 - 0:50
    a piece of the cake. Let's say that you
    cut 1 of the cakes into 8 pieces. If you
  • 0:50 - 0:55
    gave 5 friends each 1 of those slices, how
    much of that cake would be left over?
