Challenge #21: Create a math problem
using books where the answer is TEN.
Numbers are everywhere in books. They might be in the title (like Walk Two Moons or The Three Little Pigs) or they might be part of the book (like four houses at Hogwarts in the Harry Potter books or the three kisses that Strega Nona blows into her magical pasta pot). Your job is to take those numbers and put them together somehow to get an answer of 10. Here are two examples:
FOUR houses at Hogwarts PLUS THREE little pigs PLUS Strega Nona's THREE kisses EQUALS TEN.
THREE blind mice TIMES the FOUR sisters in The Penderwicks MINUS Cinderella's TWO wicked stepsisters EQUALS TEN.
Step 1: Find the numbers in the books you are reading.
Step 2: Put your books (and your brains) together to make a math problem.
Step 3: Share your answer with me!
