Is this math problem hard?
- There are 12 brothers living in a mansion. Six brothers are sitting in a rectangular kind of table. Six other brothers stood around them. They all have ten huge backpacks. Each backpack has 8 large monkeys. For every large monkey, there are 3 small ones. How many legs are there in all?
**** Problem may look weird but my teacher, who says one of kids most weakest part of math is solving story problems, said that we should write our own problem. Is this good? I don't even know how to solve my own problem because I just wrote things down quickly. I'll try to solve it if this is a good problem.
just write down the facts they provide as algebraic expressions. Take a stab at it, and show how far you get.
