Part 5
1) Does it seem fair?
A- No, it is not fair
2)1st case- 3 billion dollars was stolen - 4 month sentence in jail
2nd case - \$100 dollar was stolen - 15 years sentence in jail
3)Because in the 1st case he stole 3 billion dollars and stayed in jail for 4 months.
2nd case he stole 100 dollars and went to jail for 15 years.
4)What would you have done if you were the judge?
A- If I was the judge I would sentence the 1st guy 14 years in jail because of the huge amount he stole, not like the homeless guy, he surrendered the money. For the 2nd case I would sentence him for 5 months because he didn't steal that big of an amount.

*Bonus Question

Q- How tall is the tree on the left?
A- The first thing I did was search up the average height of a 14 year old boy, I got 5'7. I multiplied it by 2 and got 11.4, I took my ruler and measured the tree and it wasn't enough to fill the tree. So I multiplied it by 3 and got 17.1.
- The answer is approximately 17.1.

1. I like how you had good pictures to go with your definitions in Part 1. I also like how you showed the solutions to get the answers on Part 2. My wish is that you could have put up all of the questions on Part 5.
