### Word Problem Wednesday-January 8th

Jan 8, 2020

Lower Elementary:
Question: Brooklyn has 154 blocks and Victoria has 342. They combine their blocks to build a castle, and they use all but 12 of them. How many blocks did Brooklyn and Victoria use on the castle?

Solution: First, we add up all the blocks: 154 + 342 = 496. Next, we subtract the blocks that Brooklyn and Victoria didn’t use: 496 – 12 = 484.

Upper Elementary:
Question: Eli picks up 288 seashells at the beach. He divides them evenly among 12 boxes. Then, he gives 7 boxes of seashells to Lincoln. How many seashells does Lincoln get?

Solution: When Eli divides the 288 seashells into 12 boxes, he puts 288 ÷ 12 = 24 seashells in each box. Since Lincoln gets 7 boxes, he gets 24 × 7 = 168 seashells.

Middle School:
Question: A sheet cake is 12 inches wide, 18 inches long, and 4 inches deep. Layla cuts a 4-inch by 4-inch slice of cake from the corner. How many cubic inches of cake are left?
