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