Word problems allow students the opportunity to apply their math skills in authentic situations. All too often, children who are able to solve numeric problems find themselves at a loss when faced with a word problem. Some of the best problems to work with are those in which the unknown factor is located in either the beginning or the middle of the problem. For example, instead of saying, "I have 29 balloons and the wind blew eight of them away," and then asking "How many do I have left?" try something like this instead: "I had a lot of balloons but the wind blew eight of them away. Now I only have 21 balloons left. How many did I have to begin with?" Or, "I had 29 balloons, but the wind blew some away, and I only have 21 now. How many balloons did the wind blow away?"

## Word Problem Examples

- Each case of oranges has 12 rows of 12 oranges. The school principal wants to buy enough oranges to make sure that every student gets an orange. There are 524 students in the school. How many cases does the principal need to buy?
- A woman wants to plant tulips in her flower garden. She has enough room to plant 24 tulips. The tulips can be purchased in bunches of five for $7.00 per bunch, or they can be purchased for $1.50 each. The woman wants to spend as little money as possible. What should she do and why?
- The 421 students at Eagle School are going on a trip to the zoo. Each bus has 72 seats. There are also 20 teachers going on the trip to supervise the students. How many buses are needed to make sure that all of the students and teachers are able to go to the zoo?

## How to Solve 'Fraction of a Number' Word Problems

Let's solve real-world problems using this skill. 😁

Jane baked 24 chocolate chip cookies . She gave 1 / 3 of the cookies to her neighbor. How many cookies did she give to her neighbor?

We need to figure out 1 / 3 of 24 .

1 / 3 of 24 is the same as this:

24 × 1/3 = ?

1️⃣ First, multiply 24 by the numerator:

24 × 1 = 24

2️⃣ Then, divide the product we got by the denominator:

Now we know that she gave 8 cookies to her neighbor. 🍪 ✅

Of the 16 cookies that were left, Jane gave 3 / 4 to her parents , and she ate the rest . How many cookies did she give to her parents?

We need to figure out 3 / 4 of 16.

16 × 3/4 = ?

1️⃣ First, multiply 16 by the numerator:

16 × 3 = 48

48 ÷ 4 = 12

Jane gave 12 cookies to her parents. 🍪 ✅

Tip: If the math is easier, you can swap the steps. Divide first, then multiply.

16 ÷ 4 × 3 = 4 × 3 = 12

## Final Example

Jerry bought a box of nails. It has 80 nails in it. He used 3 / 8 of the nails to repair his fence. How many nails did he use?

👉 We need to find 3 / 8 of 80 .

80 × 3/8 = ?

1️⃣ First, multiply 80 by the numerator.

80 × 3 = 240

2️⃣ Divide this product by the denominator.

240 ÷ 8 = 30

So Jerry used 30 nails to repair his fence . 😎

80 × 3/8 = 30 ✅

Now, practice your problem-solving skills. 😺
