Stack of Books

In this problem, you will work with three quantities: the number of books in a stack, the height of the stack, and the thickness of each book (inches per book).

Create a set of three numbers that show the relationship among the quantities.

  • Create your sets of three numbers in three different ways:
    • The first set contains any numbers.
    • The second set contains numbers greater than 10.
    • The third set contains decimal numbers.
