Bags of Chocolate

Here is Ana's number story?  Can you solve the problem?  Leave a comment and tell us how you solved it.

Mille had six bags there were three chocolates in each bag. How many chocolates are there all together?


  1. Oooo! What great number stories! I enjoyed working them out - it was like solving a mystery. I think Mille has 18 chocolates, which is far too many, so she should give 3 bags to me. Now how many chocolates does Mille have?

  2. Whoops! I forgot to say how I solved it. There are 6 groups of 3 chocolates, which is the same as 3+3+3+3+3+3 or 6x3 which is 18.
