Problem of the Week
A number of children are standing equally spaced around the edge of a large circle and are numbered consecutively. Abby is 14th and Emma is 32nd and are standing directly across from each other. How many children are there?
In a week, we will post solutions for this problem. At that time we will also choose one commenter who gave the correct answer to get a copy of Zeroing in on Number and Operations (the commenter who wins can choose from PreK-K, 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, or 7-8). If you want to be entered into the drawing please comment with your solution, and leave your first name last initial.
We look forward to seeing your responses!
