Q:
# Keyoka has some bows. She has 8 more purple bows than green bows. She has twice as many orange bows as purple bows. She has 9 green bows. How many bows does Keyoka have altogether?Student's solution: Work backwards. Keyoka has 9 green bows. She has 8 more purple bows than green bows (9 + 8 = 17). She has twice as many orange bows as purple bows (17 Γ 2 = 34). So Keyoka has 9 + 17 + 34 or 60 bows.Use a similar strategy to solve this problem.Jessica has some markers.
