Challenge: Allison buys 16 treats for her pet bird and 8 treats for her fish. Hansen buys 6 treats for his pet cat and 14 treats are packd in each of 4 containers. How many more treats does Allison pack in each container than Hansen? Explain
(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
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
