Would you believe it if we told you that a dog could tutor for math? It’s true! Well...kind of. We’re featuring a few shelter dogs in this week’s word problem to encourage kids math learning. After all, we know that the best way to learn math is to apply it in real world situations.
This word problem challenges students to practice their elementary school math skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It may look “ruff”, but trust us, this question is a walk in the park!
Question: Grace, Ruby, and James volunteer to walk shelter dogs. Grace walks half as many dogs as Ruby, who walks 5 more dogs than James. James walks 9 dogs. How many dogs did Grace walk?
Take your time working out the particulars. When you're ready, look below to compare your solution to ours.
Solution: If Ruby walked 5 more dogs than James, then she walked 9 + 5 = 14 dogs. Grace walked half as many as that, so she walked half of 14 = 7 dogs.
