Farming involves many different costs and percents. This project assigns values using market rates for animals sold at a County Fair plus estimates provided for raising them. Students use inequalities to display relationships and calculate percentages of sale prices, profits, and weights for their animals. As an optional end, students can negotiate to sell their animals to one another as one side plays a restaurant owner and the other plays the farmer.
