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