Here's the solution!

To go all the way around the box, the ribbon covers 15 inches, 4 times. That’s 60 inches. To wrap the ribbon all the way around the box twice, Sammy needs 60 × 2 = 120 inches of ribbon. For the bow, he’ll need another 11/2 feet, or 18 inches. Altogether, that’s 120 + 18 inches of ribbon.

Howdy, problem solvers! Here's the solution: It’s 2016 right now, so Texas is 2016 – 1845 = 171 years old. Dallas is 26 years younger than Texas, so Dallas has been a city for 171 – 26 = 145 years!

We're all about backyard barbecues and hot dogs on this summery #WordProblemWednesday ! Give our word problem a try and check back tomorrow for the answer!

Hot dogs come in packages of 10. Hot dog buns come in packages of 8. Each bottle of ketchup has enough ketchup in it for 24 hot dogs. What is the least number of packages of hot dogs, packages of hot dog buns, and bottles of ketchup you can buy so that you have the same number of servings of each?

Here's the solution!

The least common multiple of 10, 8, and 24 is 120. The least number of packages of each you can buy so that you have the same number of servings of hot dogs, buns, and ketchup need to contain a total of 120 servings. 12 packages of 10 makes 120 hot dogs, 15 packages of 8 makes 120 buns, and 5 bottles of 24 servings makes 120 squirts of ketchup.

We make math make sense
Introduction
Mathnasium is a math learning center for students in pre-K through 12th grade. Our goal is to significantly increase your child’s math skills, understanding of math concepts, and overall school performance, while building confidence and forging a positive attitude toward the subject.

OUR PHILOSOPHY: Children don’t hate math. They hate being confused and intimidated by math. With understanding comes passion.And with passion comes growth—a treasure is unlocked.
