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