**helper**, Monday, February 7, 2011 at 11:35pmI am not sure if a 4th grader would solve the problem as follows.

x = apple slices

3x = orange slices

x + 3x = 32

4x = 32

x = 8

x = 8 apple slices

3x = 3(8) = 24

24 + 8 = 32

**MattsRiceBowl**, Monday, February 7, 2011 at 11:38pmEasiest way to start to learn how to do this is like this.

Write down 3 "o"s then one "a"

ooo

a

Now you have 4 of everything. Keep doing that until you have 32.

oooooo

aa

There is 8.

How many do you end up with?

(Note: there is a way to do this with math and algebra, but it's usually not taught in 4th grade. Right now, get the visual sense of what is happening.)

**Right Answer**, Wednesday, February 9, 2011 at 11:12pm1 apple slice, 3 orange slice, plus

1 apple slice, 3 orange slice, plus

1 apple slice, 3 orange slice, plus

1 apple slice, 3 orange slice, plus

1 apple slice, 3 orange slice, plus

1 apple slice, 3 orange slice, plus

1 apple slice, 3 orange slice, plus

1 apple slice, 3 orange slice, plus

equals 32 slices

also eguals 2 whole apples and 6 whole oranges. :P
