Grade 4

Read the Headline Story to the students. Encourage them to create problems that can be solved using the information from the story.

Yvonne planted a number of trees in a row, spacing them equally. Explain how you can find the length of the row of trees if you know how many trees there are and the amount of space between.

- Since the spaces are only between the trees, there will be one less space than the number of trees.
- To find the total length, I would need to subtract 1 from the number of trees and then multiply that number by the amount of space between the trees.
