You must have figured out the answer by now. If you have, congratulations are in order. We knew you could do this.
Still, we are going to reveal the answer so you can cross-check your answer.
We have been asked to change only one number in the word problem so that the number of cards that Alexander has at the end of the first part of the game is 6. We are told that he has won 17 cards during the second half and finishes the game with 28 cards. In order to know how many cards he had in the first part we should subtract what he won during the second part from the total number of cards he ended the game with, in other words, 28 – 17 = 11. Since we have been asked to make sure the answer is 6 and can only change one data, we have two valid options.
- Change the number of cards he won during the second part, if he won 17 and we add 5, 17 +5 = 22. Then when we subtract that number from the total, 28 – 22 = 6, it gives us the number we need to solve the word problem. Alexander had 6 cards at the end of the first part of the game.
- Change the number of cards that he had at the end of the game, subtracting 5 from the 28 cards, 28 – 5 = 23. Then subtract the number of cards he won during the second part, 17, from the total, 23 – 17 = 6. Alexander had 6 cards at the end of the first part of the game.
Note: Probably, this can have more than one solution.
