You’re super excited for dinner tonight: Chicken is on the menu! But oh no: Chicken comes topped with Brussel sprout. You don’t want to hurt the chef’s feelings, so you sneak every bit of Brussel sprout off the plate and launch it into the sky on a Black hot air balloon. But Brussel sprout doesn’t fly far before a hungry seagull gobbles it up. Problem solved, dinner served!
Can you find 3 Black objects near you? Which item is largest?
If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of Brussel sprout with a seagull, how many different ways could you and the seagull sort those plates into 2 piles?
If there are twice as many Brussel sprout-topped cupcakes as Chicken-topped ones, and there are 7 Chicken-topped ones, how many Brussel sprout-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 Black – 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 Brussel sprout 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 into 2 piles: 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5.
14 Brussel sprout-topped cupcakes.
22 1/2 pounds, because there are 5 Wednesdays in May this year.
