 Mario picked plums off a tree in the yard.  He gave18 plums to a neighbor and had 34 left.  Whichequation, when solved, will tell how many plumsMario picked? 18 - p = 34 p ÷ 18 = 34 p - 18 = 34 p - 18 = 34 A toy company is going to use 6 boxes to ship sometoys across the country.  The company needs to ship24 toys.  Which equation, when solved, will tell howmany toys the company should put in each box? 6 x t = 24 t x 24 = 6 t - 6 = 24 t ÷ 6 = 24 Jenna put some staples into an empty stapler.  AfterJenna used 12 staples to make paper chains, therewere 69 staples left in the stapler.  Which equation,when solved, will tell how many staples Jenna putinto the stapler? s + 12 = 69 s - 12 = 69 12 - 69 = s s ÷ 12 = 69 Shane and Camille had 82 books.  They divided theminto equal piles.  Each pile had 2 books.  Which equation, when solved, will show how many pilesof books there were. 82 ÷ p = 2 82 x p = 2 41 x 2 = p 82 - p = 2 LSU needed to transport 28 fans to its footballgame from the stadium parking lot.  The universityrented a bunch of vans and put 4 fans in each van.Which equation, when solved, will tell the numberof vans that the university rented? 28 ÷ v = 4 28 - v = 4 v ÷ 28 = 4 4 ÷ 28 = v Elise has 48 blue blocks.  When she mixes them withher red blocks, there are 66 block in all.  Which equation, when solved, will show how many red blocksElise has?  r + 66 = 48 48 + 66 = r 48 + r = 18 48 + r = 66 Meredith took some almonds from a bowl.  She ate 17 of them and had 16 almonds left.  Which equation,when solved, will tell how many almonds Meredithtook from the bowl? a x 17 = 6 a - 17 = 16 16 - a = 17 a - 17 = 17 - 16 There are 65 boys in the school choir.  The choir has91 members in all.  Which equation, when solved,will show how many girls are in the school choir? g x 65 = 91 65 - g = 91 65 + g = 91 g - 65 = 91 Desmond runs 6 miles every day.  Which equation,when solved, will tell how many days it will take Desmond to run 54 miles? 6 x d = 54 d x 54 = 6 d + 54 = 6 d - 54 = 6
