Word Problem Wednesday: Adding Up the Numbers with Social Media!

Aug 15, 2018 | Cary Park

We use social media for so many things: Staying connected with family and friends, sharing what’s going on in our lives, following companies and celebrities, and… practicing math skills! This week’s word problem challenge uses the ubiquitous social media to practice elementary and middle school math skills such as averages and multiplication. Help Eddie figure out how many times to post to social media per day in order to achieve his desired average. Be sure to check back tomorrow for the solution. 

Question: For the first 5 days of the week, Eddie put 3 photos on social media per day. How many does he need to post on the weekend to have an average of 5 photos posted per day for the whole week?

Don't forget to check back next week for the solution and a new word problem!
