For example, in the 10th round (circle) that I crocheted I knew that I every time I got to a multiple of 10, I would have to do a double stitch. When I got to 10, 20, 30, 40 I had to do two stitches instead of one. The same thing with the 5th round. When I got to 5, 10, 15, 20 I had to do two stitches instead of one! I also knew that in every round I had to have a multiple of 8. For example, in round 2 I knew that I should have no more than 16 stitches, round 5 no more than 40, and round 10 no more than 80.
I had to do 22 rounds to complete the front of the bag (and then I had to do it again for the back). Choose one of the rounds (except 1, 2, 5, or 10) and use your multiplication strategy to figure out the following:
- What was the most number of stitches I could have in that round?
- Which number stitches would I have to do a double stitch?
- Explain how you found your answers.
