I don't know but it might be something like this.
How many objects are in the picture? 3 dogs + 2 bones = 5 objects.
My child has the same type of homework and I didn't understand it at first. All it is is adding or subtracting.
fine the rule
my son has that exact question!.. its problem solving using objects.. the examples they give are.. 1-Alyssa bakes 6 cookies.. so u draw 6 cookies.. 2-Farah buys 7 pens.. draw 7 pens.. this question gets me?? WRITE A PROBLEM FOR THE PICTURE.
(picture of a bone.dog.dog.dog.bone.?
u should write 3 dogs wanted bones but one of the dog wasmean so only the 2 nice dogs got the bones
2 bones + 3 dogs is 5 objects
or 2 bones - 3 dogs = -1 bones
maybe it means 5 dogs who eat the bones so 3-2 equals 1
Maybe 3 divided by two so that the two bones can be split up between the three dogs.
there were 3 dogs and only two bones oh no,what shall we do!!
I think 3 divided by 2 would work.
It is probably the dogs plus the bones or will the dogs all get a bone.
