I think it would be a great task for introducing proportional relationships. Giving the students an opportunity to all join in and create their representations, which also underscores the idea that there is more than one way to get to the answer. Many of my students think what they are doing is wrong because the ‘smart’ kid did it differently. Turning each of the representations into a gallery walk for all to view can really reinforce that what/how they are thinking is correct.
