**Reiny**, Tuesday, February 3, 2009 at 12:59pmwork backwards

before she gave Josie her oranges, Mary must have had 26 oranges.

check 1/2 of 26 plus 3 is 16, leaving her with 10

I got the 26 by adding 3 to 10, then double

now do this with 26

26+3 then doubled = 58

repeat with the 58

58+3 then doubled = 122

Mary had 122 oranges as she left the grove.

check

1/2 of 122 + 3 = 64 given to Jennifer, leaving her 58

1/2 of 58 + 3 = 32 to Angela leaving her with 26

1/2 of 26 + 3 = 16 to Josie, leaving her with 10
