Plates at a PartyMath brain teasers require computations to solve.
Tianna is planning her party. She bought a package of 2 dozen paper plates. This will give her 2 extras, and she'll still have enough for each person to have 2 plates: one plate for their hot dogs and chips, another for ice cream and cake.
Besides her brother and sister, how many friends will she have at her party?
AnswerTianna will have 8 friends at her party.
A package of 2 dozen plates is 24. Since Tianna will have 2 extra plates, she will be using 22 plates. If each person uses 2 plates, that means there will be 11 people at the party. After subtracting herself, her brother, and her sister, Tianna will have 8 friends at her party.
