So he has to come up with 4 numbers to add together. One of them must be a double digit and two of the others must equal 10. So, if the answer is 25 he could write:

11 + 7 + 3 + 4 = 25

• I would guess those are the numbers you are adding. Like if the sum they gave you was 22 the addends could be 10+5+5+2. That way one is a double (10), and one pair equals 10 (5+5). I've never heard that term before, so that's just a guess.

• Those are the numbers you're adding together. So if you had to come up with 30, the question says you have to have to use at least 4 numbers, two of the numbers must add up to 10, and you have to use the same number twice.

An example might look like this:

8+2+8+12=30

8+2 equals your 10, you use at least four numbers, and 8 is in there twice for your "double". Lol...they're trying to play stump the adult!

• Lol...I read it different than the PP when it came to the "double"...lol...we're all struggling with 2nd grade math!
