Drew and Addie are playing a game. At the end of each game, the loser gives the winner a chip. When they are done playing several games, Drew has won three games, but Addie has three more chips than she had when the game began. How many games did Drew and Addie play?


The answer is: Drew and Addie played 9 games. The best way to solve this is to get out chips or some other manipulative and work backwards through the process using the strategy of guess and check.

1. I have 9 grandchildren, five of whom are adopted.

2. My husband asked me to marry me on our first date.

3. I am a big KU fan. (We live in Kansas. KU stands for Kansas University, home of the Jayhawks.)

4. I have been teaching for over 30+ years.

Surprise.... it's #3 that is false. I was born and raised in Ohio and did graduate work at THE Ohio State University. Go Bucks!!! And, yes, my husband did ask me to marry him on our fist date. As you can tell, I eventually said, "Yes."
