Mrs. McBride loves her chocolate! Fourth graders are being challenged to put their math and creativity skills to the test.
I bought a box of candy for myself last week. However, by the time I got home I had eaten ¼ of the candies. As I was putting the groceries away, I ate ½ of what was left. There were 6 chocolates left in the box. How many chocolates were in the box to begin with?
