Alexis, Carlos, Lin and Sasha will bring fabric squares to school for a class quilt.

Some of the squares are in strips of 10, so they are easy to count. Let's see how many squares each person will bring.

Two different people will bring each color. The chart shows the number of squares packed for each color. Each person will bring 2 different colors.

Everyone will bring a different combination of colors.

  • Alexis will bring red and yellow squares.
  • Each of the 2 colors Lin will bring comes with an even number of squares.
  • Carlos will bring the color with the most squares. He also will bring green squares.

What 2 colors did Sasha bring?
How many squares did each person bring?
