Dice and Spinner Numbers

If you had any number of ordinary dice, what are the possible ways of making their totals 6? What would the product of the dice be each time?

Lemons and Oranges

Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

(If you are working with metric measures go here )

On the table there is a pile of oranges and lemons that weighs exactly two and a half pounds.

The oranges all weigh $4$ oz. The lemons are also all the same weight, which is less than $\frac{3}{4}$ of the weight of an orange.

There are twice as many lemons as oranges in the pile.

How many lemons are there and how much does each one weigh?
