Grade 4

Read the Headline Story to the students. Encourage them to use logical reasoning to draw conclusions about the coins in the story.

10 students each had _____ dimes and _____ pennies. They had $_____.

- If each student had 2 dimes and 2 pennies, they would have $2.20.
- If each student had 4 dimes and 4 pennies, they would have $4.40.
- If each student had 5 dimes and 3 pennies, they would have $5.30.
- Since each of the 10 students had the same number of dimes, they make $1.00 for each dime. So, if each student has 6 dimes, they made $6.00 with their dimes.
