Thank you to everyone who shared their ideas with our team.
As you worked on this problem, you may have found several combinations of fruit for Kate and Sam. Drawing a table or a diagram can be a useful way to keep track of your ideas.
Avanish, from the International School in Bangalore, included both a table and a diagram in this solution:
Can you see how many different combinations Avandish found? Does the table show all the combinations? How do you know?
How do you think Avanish used the diagram to work out the answer?
Avanish also suggested that the cheapest items would be the pot of raisins and a banana, and that the most expensive items would be the two apples. Do you agree?
