Welcome to Ms. Birdsall's classroom blog. We are a Grade 4 class in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.
We hope that you will enjoy seeing what is happening in our classroom.
Is it because one of the sons is a baby so then the shop owner gives them 1.00 free for the baby?
No, neither of the sons is a baby.
Was it because one if you buy three things you get the last one free??? Pawan
Good thinking, but no it was not a "buy three, get one free" deal.
Were the sons adults???Pawan
Yes! You're on the right track. :-)
Mayby because one of the sons woked at the shop and got the last item for free.
No, nothing was given for free.
Was it because that one of the sons worked at the store???Pawan :) :)
No, none of the sons worked in the store.
did the fathers get charged 1 Dollar each and the sons got charged 50 cents each?????Pawan's Brother
No, everyone got charged the same amount. Glad to see you are participating in our riddle too, Pawan's brother!
I won't tell Ms Birdsall but I know the answer to this riddle. I am very impressed with the questions that your grade four students are asking you. You have some very good thinking going on in your classroom. You must be so proud. Ms. Lirenman
I love seeing all the great thinking too! You're right I am very proud of my students. :-)
is it beacase one adult was a old man and he fainted after he went in the store?langson
No, no one fainted.
was it beacause that the shop owner was one of the sons and he took three dollars from the son and the adults, and the shop owner, which is one of the sons, donated his dollar for poor people?langson
No, but this is a very interesting guess!
Cause it's a grandfather his son and the sons son!-Nathan
You're right, Nathan, excellent work! There were only three people, so when they paid $1 each, it was $3 total.
