**Reiny**, Monday, February 4, 2013 at 6:43pmso easy with a bit of algebra, but algebra in grade 4 ?

so....

suppose we put the grain in 4 buckets

(if we give 3 buckets to the chickens and 1 bucket to the turkeys, we do what it says)

then wouldn't each bucket contain 13 pounds ?

(52÷4=13)

so the chickens get 3x13 or 39 pounds

the turkeys get 13 pounds
