# Joanna's Problem Solving

Hi it’s Joanna and I am going to help you with problem solving. I am going to help you with 2 of the questions that were for homework this weekend. So the first one that I am going to help you with is:

On the first down, a football team had loss of 8 yd. after two downs; the team had an overall gain of 20 yd. How many yards were gained on the second down?

The first thing you have to do is read the question 3 times so that you can understand what you have to do with the question. After reading it 3 times find where the question is by underlining it

On the first down, a football team had loss of 8 yd. after two downs; the team had an overall gain of 20 yd.

__How many yards were gained on the second down?__

Now that you know what the question is. Find another way to say that by using a blank for the answer. Like this

The team gained ____ yards on the second down

What are some other important words? After finding it Highlight them

On the first down, a football team had loss of 8 yd. after two downs; the team had an overall gain o f 20 yd.

__How many yards were gained on the second down?__

Now we need to make the let statement

Let y= yards gained on the second down

Now that you know the answer is 28 you can now fill in the blank that you left in the beginning

The team gained

__28__yards on the second down

The next question that I am
going to do is

Ben and Jerry together own 24 comic books. If Ben owns 6 comic books, how many does Jerry own?

So the first thing you have to do is read the question 3 times so that you can understand what you have to do with the question After reading it 3 times finds where the question is by underlining it

Ben and Jerry together own 24 comic books. If Ben owns 6 comic books,

__how many does Jerry__

is 18 you can fill in the blank spot that you left

awesome job on your scribe post, Joanna!! you did a fantastic job on your explanations and I was able to understand them very clearly. your use of pictures and highlighting gives a great touch to it as well, though I do suggest adding a bit more colour to the scribe post. I believe that it'll help make it easier to read. great scribe post, Joanna!

ReplyDeleteGood Job on your Scribe Post Joanna. You made a well organized post, explained the steps on how to solve word problems clearly. I suggest that you use more colour for the scribe post. You highlighted some of the words but it still doesn't make it stand out as much.
