Question 18.

About how much rain falls in the Chihuahuan Desert in 6 years? Explain how you can use doubles to find the answer.

Answer:

Number of inches of rainfall in Chihuahuan Desert in a 6 years = 48.

Explanation:

Number of inches of rainfall in Chihuahuan Desert in a year = 8.

Number of inches of rainfall in Chihuahuan Desert in a 6 years = 6 × Number of inches of rainfall in Chihuahuan Desert in a year

= 6 × 8

Answer:

2 more inches of rain will fall in the Sonoran Desert than in the Chihuahuan Desert.

Explanation:

Number of inches of rainfall in Sonoran Desert in a year = 9.

Number of inches of rainfall in Sonoran Desert in a 2 years = 2 × Number of inches of rainfall in Sonoran Desert in a year

= 2 × 9

= 9 + 9

= 18.

Number of inches of rainfall in Chihuahuan Desert in a year = 8.

Number of inches of rainfall in Chihuahuan Desert in a 2 years = 2 × Number of inches of rainfall in Chihuahuan Desert in a year

= 2 × 8

= 2 × (4 × 2)

Number of inches of rainfall in great basin Desert in a 2 years = 2 × Number of inches of rainfall in great basin Desert in a year

= 2 × 9

= 9 + 9

= 18.

Number of inches of rainfall in Mojave Desert in a year = 4.

Number of inches of rainfall in Mojave Desert in a 2 years = 2 × Number of inches of rainfall in Mojave Desert in a year

= 2 × 4

= 4 + 4

= 8.

Difference:

Number of inches of rainfall in great basin Desert in a 2 years – Number of inches of rainfall in Mojave Desert in a 2 years

= 18 – 8

= 10.

(B) 30

(C) 40

(D) 10

Answer:

30 more bright markers she buys than glitter markers.

(B) 30.

Explanation:

Number of packs of bright markers Ms. Wilson buys = 5.

Number of bright markers in a pack = 8.

Total number of bright markers in all packs Ms. Wilson buys = Number of packs of bright markers Ms. Wilson buys × Number of bright markers in a pack

= 5 × 8

= 5 × (4 × 2)

= (5 × 4) × 2

= 20 × 2

= 20 + 20

= 40.

Number of packs of glitter markers Ms. Wilson buys = 5.

Number of glitter markers in a pack = 2.

Total number of glitter markers in all packs Ms. Wilson buys = Number of packs of glitter markers Ms. Wilson buys × Number of glitter markers in a pack

= 5 × 2

= 5 + 5

= 10.

Difference:

Total number of bright markers in all packs Ms. Wilson buys – Total number of glitter markers in all packs Ms. Wilson buys

= 40 – 10

= 30.
