hello,
can someone please help with the below math question
Mr. brooks brought a box of 66 acorns to class. Can he give 3 acorns to each of the 23 students in his class? Why or Why not?
Thanks!

23 * 3 = ?

Nope, Because 23 * 3 = 69 and Mr Brooks has only 66 acorns

No he can't because if he did which 23x3=69 but he only has 66 acorns so then he should give each student two acorns because see below. So then he would have 20 more acorns.
23x2=46 
What is 87 more than the product of 4 and 12?

What is 39 more than the difference between 245 and 215?
What is 150 less than the product of 23 and 100? 
No because 23 divide equal 69
