Predict: I predict this wil.l be about times tables and also guess check and improve.

Clarify: I have nothing to clarify.

Find the big question: Jo spent $53 on 8 flowers and Tulips cost $6 and orchids cost $7 how many tulips did he buy.

Solution: I started off with 4 tulips and added the cost of the orchids until I got close to $53 but it was to high so I tried it with 3 tulips and then added the cost of the orchids until I got close to or exactly on $53 and in the end I needed 3 tulips that cost $6 and then 5 orchids that cost $7.

Summary: I thought I figured this question out pretty quickly and efficiently.
