In your own words explain Garret Hardin's theory of the Tragedy of the Commons and provide an example of a Tragedy of the Commons in the United States with regard to air pollution.

An example of this would be Pittsburgh in the 1930's. During the great depression, residents in need of jobs and money kept open factories that heavily polluted the air. Their failure to regulate pollution and relinquish privileges such as efficiency and money led to poor air quality. The air was so badly polluted that visibility was at an all time low and inhabitants became ill.
If Sally has 3 tubs of cookie dough and each tub of cookie dough makes 12 cookies, how many cookies will Sally have if she bakes all 3 tubs of cookie dough? Solve using multiplication and show your work.
Lets start with what we know! Cookies in each tub = 12 Tubs of cookie dough = 3 To find how many cookies Sally will have if she bakes all of the tubs of cookie dough we will need to multiply the number of cookies in each tub by the number of tubs of cookie dough. 12 X 3 = 36 (Cookies in each tub) X (Tubs of cookie dough) = Total amount of cookies The total amount of cookies Sally can make is 36 cookies.
