Ms. Goldfarb has 12 turquoise beads and 3 times as many amber beads. She is making 8 pins with the same number of beads on each pin. How many beads will be on a pin?

MIKI  Please tell us how you think you can solve this problem.
We helped you several times yesterday. Now it's your turn.
I'll be glad to check your answer. 
I think that the answer is 6 because 12 * 3 =36 then you add 12 to 36.48/ by 8 is 6. Am i right?

Yay! You are right! :)

thank you!!!!!!!

You're very welcome!
