## Example Questions

### Example Question #1 : Operations And Algebraic Thinking

Justin has  shelves in his room. Each shelf holds  toys. If Justin has  toys, how many toys don't fit on the shelves?

Explanation:

To solve this problem, we first need to find out how many of Justin's toys will fit on the shelves. If we have  shelves, and  toys fit on each shelf, we can multiply those two numbers together to find out the total number of toys that will fit. Let's let  represent the number of toys that will fit.

Justin has  toys, so to find out how many don't fit on the shelves we need to know what is left over, so we subtract. Let's let  represent the number of toys left over.
