Shelly and Melissa spent Saturday morning making chocolate chip cookies. They counted the cookies and discovered they had made 53 of them. Then Shelly decided to divide the cookies. Since Shelly was five years older than Melissa, it seemed natural for her to get five more cookies. Draw and label a guess and check table and use it to find out how many cookies were in each sister's pile. Be sure to show all four steps clearly.
