Demarcus likes to watch butterflies. He counts a total of 10 wings in all. If each butterfly has a pair of wings, how many butterflies does Demarcus see?

(A) 20

(B) 10

(C) 5

(D) 2

Answer:

**Explanation:
**Demarcus counted a total wing of butterflies as 10

Now if a butterfly is having a pair of wings means, one pair is equal to 2 wings. From this statement, we can say 10 wings is equal to 5 pairs that are 10/2 = 5

Demarcus watched 5 butterflies.

Question 9.

Tanya makes a bracelet with 20 beads. She makes a repeating pattern of two red beads and two blue beads. How many patterns are there?

(A) 4

(B) 16

(C) 5

(D) 10

Answer:

Option

**C**is correct.

Total number of beads present with Tanya to make bracelet=20

She is making a bracelet with a repeating pattern that is two red beads and two blue beads. Now we have to calculate the number of patterns present in the bracelet.

Total 10 patterns are available. Therefore, 10/2=5 patterns.

Question 10.

**Multi-Step** A store has 14 gloves. Two of the pairs are black. The rest are brown. How many pairs of brown gloves are there?

(A) 5

(B) 8

(C) 12

(D) 7

Answer:

Option A is correct.

Explanation:

Total number of gloves=14

There are two types of gloves are present which are black and brown. Already the number of pairs present in black is given that is 2, and now we need to find out the number of pairs present in brown.

Therefore, **a set of two gloves is equal to one pair**. From this, we can calculate brown gloves.

A total number of gloves-number of gloves are there in black=14-4=10gloves. (2 pairs=4 gloves)

Now the pairs present in the brown gloves=10/2=5

Hence, 5 pairs are there in brown gloves.

Question 11.

**Multi-Step** Lin makes a tile design with 24 tiles. Half are red and half are blue. He takes away 4 red tiles. How many red tiles are in the design now?

(A) 20

(B) 8

(C) 12

(D) 28

Answer: B

Option **B** is correct.

Explanation:

Total number of tiles = 24

Number of red tiles = Half of the total number of tiles = 24/2 = 12

Number of blue tiles = Half of the total number of tiles = 24/2 = 12

Lin takes away 4 red tiles, therefore, the red tiles are left in the design.

12 red tiles – 4 red tiles = 8 red tiles.

The number of red tiles that remain in the design is 8 red tiles.
