Claire's Counting Cards

Stage: 1 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

Claire sent us her solution (maybe she wanted to try the question because it's got her name in it!).

Claire has 24 cards, because 12x2=24.

Ross has 24 cards, because 8x3=24.

Lucia has 24 cards, because 6x4=24.

So they all have the same number of cards!

If you haven't learnt about multiplying yet, maybe you'd like to think about it like this.

Claire has 2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2=24 cards.

Ross has 3+3+3+3+3+3+3+3=24 cards.

Lucia has 4+4+4+4+4+4=24 cards.
