At the Natural History museum Paula saw 5 times as many beetles as spiders. She saw 6 more spiders than caterpillars. If Paula saw 50 insects and spiders, how many of each kind did she see?

Aunt is stumped!

The School Subject should be something like MATH for the correct volunteer teacher to read it. 3rd grade really tells us nothing. . .English, Music, Science, Math, Philosophy, etc.

40 beetles / 8 spiders / 2 caterpillars = total of 50
