(16+8) - (6+14)

It isn't asking for anything complicated in this one, lucky you!

So all you need to need to look at is:

Allison: 16 +8

Hansen: 6+14

The rest of the info is there just to confuse you and see how close of attention you are paying. Some will disagree with me on this but lets be serious.

So it wants to know how many MORE Allison has then Hansen

Add 16+8 which equals: 24 -- this is how many treats Allison bought

Add 6+14 which equals: 20 -- this is how many treats Hansen bought

Now just subtract: 24-20 = 4

Allison has **4** MORE treats total then Hansen

I can see the idea in this answer but it assumes more than the question states. The question asks how many are packed in "each" container by Allison. Furthermore, it doesn't ask how many "more are packed by Allison and it says nothing about how she distributes them in the containers. Rebecca may be right about what the question is after but if she is right then this is a very poorly written question.11/05/12
