### Eureka Math Grade 6 Module 4 Lesson 22 Example Answer Key

Example 1: Folding Paper

Exercises:

Exercise 1.
Predict how many times you can fold a piece of paper in half.
My prediction: _____

Exercise 2.
Before any folding (zero folds), there is only one layer of paper. This is recorded in the first row of the table. Fold your paper in half. Record the number of layers of paper that result. Continue as long as possible.  a. Are you able to continue folding the paper indefinitely? Why or why not?
No. The stack got too thick on one corner because it kept doubling each time.

b. How could you use a calculator to find the next number in the series?
I could multiply the number by 2 to find the number of layers after another fold.

c. What is the relationship between the number of folds and the number of layers?
As the number of folds increases by one, the number of layers doubles.

d. How is this relationship represented in the exponential form of the numerical expression?
I could use 2 as a base and the number of folds as the exponent.

e. If you fold paper f times, write an expression to show the number of paper layers.
There would be 2f layers of paper.

Exercise 3.
If the paper were to be cut instead of folded, the height of the stack would double at each successive stage, and it would be possible to continue.

a. Write an expression that describes how many layers of paper result from 16 cuts.
216

b. Evaluate this expression by writing it in standard form.
216 = 65,536

Example 2: Bacterial Infection

Bacteria are microscopic single-celled organisms that reproduce in a couple of different ways, one of which is called binary fission. In binary fission, a bacterium increases its size until it is large enough to split into two parts that are identical. These two grow until they are both large enough to split into two individual bacteria. This continues as long as growing conditions are favorable. a. Record the number of bacteria that result from each generation.  b. How many generations would it take until there were over one million bacteria present?
20 generations will produce more than one million bacteria. 220 = 1,048,576

c. Under the right growing conditions, many bacteria can reproduce every 15 minutes. Under these conditions, how long would It take for one bacterium to reproduce itself into more than one million bacteria?
It would take 20 fifteen-minute periods, or 5 hours.

d. Write an expression for how many bacteria would be present after g generations.
There will be 2g bacteria present after g generations.

Example 3: Volume of a Rectangular Solid This box has a width, w. The height of the box, h, is twice the width. The length of the box, l, is three times the width. That is, the width, height, and length of a rectangular prism are in the ratio of 1: 2: 3.

For rectangular solids like this, the volume is calculated by multiplying length times width times height.
V = l . w . h
V = 3w . w . 2w
V = 3 .2 . w . w . w
V = 6w3

Follow the above example to calculate the volume of these rectangular solids, given the width, w.  ### Eureka Math Grade 6 Module 4 Lesson 22 Problem Set Answer Key

Question 1.
A checkerboard has 64 squares on it. a. If one grain of rice is put on the first square, 2 grains of rice on the second square, 4 grains of rice on the third square, 8 grains of rice on the fourth square, and so on (doubling each time), complete the table to show how many grains of rice are on each square. Write your answers in exponential form on the table below.  b. How many grains of rice would be on the last square? Represent your answer in exponential form and standard form. Use the table above to help solve the problem.
There would be 263 0r 9,223, 372, 036, 854, 775, 808 grains of rice.

c. Would It have been easier to write your answer to part (b) in exponential form or a standard form?
Answers will vary. Exponential form is more concise: 263. Standard form is longer and more complicated to calculate: 9,223, 372, 036, 854, 775, 808. (In word form: nine quintillions, two hundred twenty-three quadrillion, three hundred seventy-two trillion, thirty-six billion, eight hundred fifty-four million, seven hundred seventy-five thousand, eight hundred eight.)

Question 2.
If an amount of money is invested at an annual interest rate of 6%, it doubles every 12 years. If Alejandra invests $500, how long will it take for her investment to reach$2, 000 (assuming she does not contribute any additional funds)?
It will take for 24 years. After 12 years, Alejandra will have doubled her money and will have $1,000. If she waits an additional 12 years, she will have$2,000.

Question 3.
The athletics director at Peter’s school has created a phone tree that is used to notify team players in the event a game has to be canceled or rescheduled. The phone tree is initiated when the director calls two captains. During the second stage of the phone tree, the captains each call two players. During the third stage of the phone tree, these players each call two other players. The phone tree continues until all players have been notified. If there are 50 players on the teams, how many stages will it take to notify all of the players?
It will take five stages. After the first stage, two players have been called, and 48 will not have been called. After the second stage, four more players will have been called, for a total of six; 44 players will remain uncalled. After the third stage, players (eight) more will have been called, totaling 14; 36 remain uncalled. After the fourth stage, 2 more players (16) will have gotten a call, for a total of 30 players notified. Twenty remain uncalled at this stage. The fifth round of calls will cover all of them because 25 includes 32 more players.
