You’re super excited for dinner tonight: roast beef is on the menu! But oh no: roast beef comes topped with onions. You don’t want to hurt the chef’s feelings, so you sneak every bit of onions off the plate and launch it into the sky on a blue hot air balloon. But onions doesn’t fly far before a hungry seagull gobbles it up. Problem solved, dinner served!
Can you find 3 blue objects near you? Which item is largest?
If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of onions with a seagull,, how many different ways could you and the seagull share those plates?
If there are twice as many onions-topped cupcakes as roast beef-topped ones, and there are 7 roast beef-topped ones, how many onions-topped cupcakes are there?
You’re opening your own restaurant and order a big box of 72 onions! But 1/2 of the onions are blue – that can’t be good. How many onions do you need to toss in the compost?
Oh no! The onion people also keep delivering 4 1/2 pound boxes of onions every Wednesday this May. How many pounds does that add up to for the month?
Different for everyone!
There are 5 ways that you and the birds could split 10 plates: 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5.
14 onions-topped cupcakes.
22 1/2 pounds, because there are 5 Wednesdays in May this year.
