He did division and a pemdas kinda thing then multiplication. They didn't put the place holder and got 13. Every way he tried they messed up in the problem but the right anwser was 28 divided by 7 is 4 doughtnuts for each sailor. Article posted November 2, 2011 at 02:37 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1465

So each officer gets 4 donuts each, NOT 13 !That's how I solved it . Article posted November 7, 2011 at 11:48 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1001

But Costello said that it was 7X13 that equaled 28. But the problem problem 7X13 equals 91. one of the other ways that you can divide 13 and 28 and see what it comes out as. and the answer to that is 2 remainder 2. So Costello was way off on that problem. Article posted November 2, 2011 at 02:33 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1665

Next, they did multiplication. They did not put a place holder so they got it wrong. Finally they tried to do addition. They did not carry the 2 when adding the ones column of 13 seven times. Instead they continued to count arriving at 21 + 7 more to get 28. If they wanted to give each officer 13, they would have to bake 91 doughnuts in all. Instead the cook had baked 28 doughnuts. That would be enough to give each officer 4 each. Article posted October 30, 2011 at 06:09 AM GMT • comment • Reads 859

So the first sailer tryed to prove it by drawing it out. So he did 28/7 he put 7 into 28 1 time then put one in the quotent. Then he put 3 sevens into 21 so he got 13.  He was wrong because he first acted like the 1 was a ten. Then he did 13*7. 3*7=21 and 7*1=7 so he then added 21 to 7 and got 28. He got that wrong because he put no place holder in the problom. He wanted to try and prove it one more time so he did 13+13+13+13+13+13+13 he first added the threes like 3*7 then he added the ones like 1*7 he added them and got 28 eight again. He was wrong there because he acted like the tens were ones again like in the division problom. Article posted October 25, 2011 at 01:53 PM GMT • comment • Reads 819
