1. Last week, Mary picked 4 baskets of 8 tomatoes from her garden. This week, she picked 3
baskets of 13 tomatoes. How many more tomatoes, t, does Mary pick this week than last week?
A. (4 + 8)  (3 + 13) = t
Solve and check your equation here:
B. (4  8) + (3  13) = t
C. (3  13) + (4  8) = t
D. (3  13) - (4  8) = t
2. The 5 members of the Wyler family paid \$112 for admission to a water park. What was the
price of, p, of each ticket?
Solve and check your equation here:
A. p = 5 + 112
B. p = 5 - 112
C. p = 5  112
D. p = 5 ÷ 112
3. Tom and his sister earned money by doing yard work. He collected all the money after their
jobs. Tom gave his sister \$54 and he kept \$54. There was \$42 left, which they gave to their
family. How much money, m, did Tom collect for all their yard work?
A. m = 54  2 + 42
B. m = 54 + 54 + 42
C. m = 54 - 54 + 42
D. m = 54 + 54 - 42

4. The math club is selling pencil cases to raise money for a field trip. The field trip costs \$508,
of which they already have \$76. If pencil cases, p, are \$2 each, how many do they need to sell
to raise enough money?
A. (508 - 76) ÷ 2 = m
Solve and check your equation here:
B. (508 + 76) ÷ 2 = m
C. (508 - 76)  2 = m
D. (508 + 76)  2 = m
5. Katie’s horse eats 3 bales of hay each week. Find the number of weeks, w, that 36 bales of hay
