## Math Challenge

• Thanks to Mrs. Hilton, Ms. Miller, Mrs. Percival, and Mrs. Huskins for attempting the math challenge problem last week. They each provided a reasonable and acceptable solution to the problem.For your efforts you each have been given \$50 to spend on classroom supplies and materials. Please see Mrs. Tolbert and place your order by the end of the week.

There explanations are below:

• Hilton Answer: 96

• Explanation: Each example problem equals two numbers multiplied then adding the first number to the answer. For example: 3+6=21 is like saying 3x6=18+3=21. So if you follow the pattern, 8+11=96 because 8x11=88+8=96

I got 40. And the addends and then added the previous sums. So, 8 + 11 =19, then 19 + 21 is 40.

• The answer is 40. You add the sum of each previous answer to the addends of the next equation.

• I got 96. If you multiply the two numbers and then add the first number you will get the answer. For example, (1 X 4) + 1=5 . (8 X 11) + 8 =96.
