Would you rather put together …

one puzzle with 500 pieces, if 156 pieces are already done? Or 3 puzzles with 40, 85, and 135 pieces?

Use pictures, models, words, numbers, or symbols to justify your choice.

Create your own puzzle problem like this one. Then share it with someone and ask them to explain their choice.
