    Re: Dominoes

    The problem says use the numbers on those dominos to create a true addition problem. In other words, place the dominos in those outlines so that the bottom number is the sum of the two numbers above it. There is no one correct answer, there are many ways to do that.

    I don't get your post either.
    Why would someone asking for help with a question post that question sideways?
    Why did you post it sideways? How do you expect it to be read?

    I clicked on it and it IS sideways, but anyway …

    Why don't you cut out the dominoes, place them on the nine rectangles and play around with them a bit? You'll soon see that certain dominoes can't be placed in certain positions. For example, because there are no identical dominoes (even after flipping them), the 0-0 domino can't be placed at the end of the first and second row; can you see why not?


    What "don't you get"? Do you understand what the question is asking? It does require a bit of time - give it a go!!

    Be patient and persevere. Use a bit of logic, not just blind guessing. Let us know when you get the solution

    Yes, that's the sort of thing you have to produce.

    However, to produce your top number you need a 2-3 domino, a 6-5 domino and a 3-4 domino. None of those are in the list of dominoes you have to choose from!
