Remember:

Pull out the important information

When in doubt – DRAW it out (make a picture or diagram)

Decide what operation to use (add, subtract, multiply, divide)

 How many kids were on each team?
 If 4 students were absent tomorrow, how many students will be on each team?
#2: Lin and Karina volunteer to walk dogs in their neighborhood. THey each walk the same number of dogs.
 If 18 dogs need walks, how many dogs will each girl take?
