# Making Muffins

## Solution

Twenty-nine muffins had nuts.

## Explanation

### Step 1. Find out how many muffins each person made.

- Given: Glen made 16 muffins.
- Catrina made 1 less muffin than Glen. So Catrina made 15 muffins.
- Lisa and Meg each made 3 more muffins than Catrina. So Lisa and Meg each made 18 muffins.
- Find out how many muffins Wayne made.
- First, add the number of mufffins made by the other children.

16 + 15 + 18 + 18 = 67 muffins. - Next, subtract this number from the total number of muffins.

87 − 67 = 20

Wayne made 20 muffins.

### Step 2. Make a chart.

### Step 3. Add clues to the chart.

Write the fraction of muffins that had nuts. Complete the chart.

### Step 4. Find the total number of muffins with nuts.

Add the number of muffins with nuts made by each person to find the total number of muffins with nuts.

4 + 5 + 6 + 9 + 5 + = 29
