4th grade Math Help
posted by Ryan .
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

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
