The Tasty as Pi Bakery has two locations! Each location offers the same flavors. Both locations display one pie of each flavor in a rectangle.
The downtown location has rows in its display. The uptown location has rows in its display. If one of the locations has a square display, how many pies are in each of the other location's rows?
Explain, in words, how to solve this problem. Use complete sentences. Write as though the person reading is one of your classmates who has not seen the problem before. Include any important observations you made and explain why you are doing anything that isn't totally obvious.
Since one of the locations has a square display, it must have an even number of pies in total. Let's call the number of pies in this square display "n".
If the downtown location has 2 rows, then each row must have n/2 pies.
Similarly, if the uptown location has 2 rows, then each row must also have n/2 pies.
Therefore, each row in both the downtown and uptown locations must have n/2 pies.
