Mrs. Reid brought 32 orange and apple slices to her daughter's soccer practice. There were three times as many orange slices as there were apple slices. How many of each kind did she bring?

    I 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

    Easiest 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.)
