Problem of the Week: Homemade Crayons

Did you figure it out? Let's look at the solution!

 

Nora made a total of 90 crayons.

Four small boxes hold 8 × 4 = 32 crayons, leaving 90 – 32 = 58 crayons unboxed

So, Nora can put 48 into 2 large boxes (24 x 2 = 48), which leaves 10 crayons to be put into a 3rd large box.

 

Look forward to next week's problem!
