Would You Rather? Bouquet Bounty

Would you rather have …

5 bouquets of 10 flowers each and give 30 flowers to your teacher? Or 4 bouquets of 10 flowers each and give 10 flowers to your teacher?

Use words or numbers to explain your choice.
You can also use the number lines below to show your thinking.

I would rather have … because …

Two identical number lines, side by side. Each number line starts at 0 and ends at 100. Each tick mark increases by 10, going from 0 to 10 to 20 and so on.


Can you think of a reason why the other choice might make sense?


Write, tell, or draw your own problem like this one.
Then share it with someone else and ask them to explain their choice.
