Magic Pot Sample

    MAGIC POT PROBLEM:

    I collected one dozen eggs from the henhouse.

    I put them in the magic pot.

    How many eggs will I get back?

     

    SOLUTIONS: (Solve, Draw a picture and Write an equation)

    12 eggs + 12 eggs = 24 eggs

    llllllllllll + llllllllllll = 24 eggs

    12 + 12 = 10+2 + 10+2 = 10+10=20 and  2+2=4 so 20+4=24 eggs
