Student Instructions

Read all the way through the task below at least once. Then click on the template below to begin. Weetabix breakfast cereal is made in boxes of 12, 24, 36, 48 and 72 pieces. My daughter Kate says she likes to eat 2 Weetabix every day and my son Jack likes to eat 3 a day. 1. I'm wondering how many days each pack would last me. Can you show me? 2. Which box should I buy for the week so I have the least number of Weetabix left over? Explain. 3. If the company made an even larger box than 72, how many would be in it and how do you know that? 4. Now, if Kate maybe ate toast 2 days a week and Jack ate eggs once a week (instead of Weetabix), how many would I have left over from a pack of 36?
