Level 1: Grand Opening:

Rose, Tulip, and Daffodil decided to start a flower shop. On the day of their grand opening, they sold 45 roses. They also sold 5 fewer daffodils than they sold of the roses. They sold 12 more tulips than they sold of the daffodils. Draw a picture or bar model to help you. How many of each type of flower did they sell?

Roses = ________________

Daffodils = ________________

Tulips = ________________

Level 2: Success or Failure?:

How many total flowers did they sell the first day? Show your calculations. Their goal was to sell 100 flowers each day? Did they make their goal for their first day? Explain how much over or under the goal they were.

Level 3: Weekly Average:

The rest of the week was very busy for the 3 women. On Tuesday, they sold 84 flowers. On Wednesday, they sold 102 flowers. On Thursday, they sold 95, and finally on Friday, they sold 112 flowers. Find the average number of flowers they sold each day (don’t forget to include Monday). Average can be found by adding up all the numbers and then dividing by the number of days. Was their average better or worse than their $100/day goal?
