### Subject: Pre-Algebra

Monica has going to sell goodie baskets at a school fundraiser. She is going to put two candy bars in each basket. She has 24 candy bars total. How many baskets can she make? Two candy bars x B(number of baskets) = 24 candy bars.

We know that each basket need 2candy bars, and we have 24 candy bars total. We can use that information to write the equation 2B=24 Next we divide both sides by 2 and find that B=12, so she can make 12 baskets.

Shelley has 8 people attending her party and 16 slices of pizza. How many slices of pizza can each person have?

To find th answer we would take the total number of slices and divide them amongst the 8 people. In other words, how many times does 8 go into 16? 2 times. This could be further explained by drawing 16 slices of pizza and then circling 8 at a time, representing each person getting 1 piece at a time.
