You’re super excited for dinner tonight: Cheese cake is on the menu! But oh no: Cheese cake comes topped with Rice. You don’t want to hurt the chef’s feelings, so you sneak every bit of Rice off the plate and launch it into the sky on a Purple hot air balloon. But Rice 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 Rice with a seagull, how many different ways could you and the seagull sort those plates into 2 piles?
If there are twice as many Rice-topped cupcakes as Cheese cake-topped ones, and there are 7 Cheese cake-topped ones, how many Rice-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 Rice 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 Rice-topped cupcakes.
22 1/2 pounds, because there are 5 Wednesdays in May this year.
