"The tens digit cannot be greater and is one more than the hundreds digit" gives it away.<br /><br />Of course, I teach fourth grade and am used to puzzles like this. And yes, I do think third graders can do it, with the expectation that they will have to puzzle it out with guess-and-check.Alex Valencichttp://www.blogger.com/profile/06176742152052333764noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6714058.post-86436436277354557702013-09-25T14:17:45.317-07:002013-09-25T14:17:45.317-07:00898898Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6714058.post-67295412641337314002013-09-22T19:04:29.135-07:002013-09-22T19:04:29.135-07:00898 :)

When I teach math, I work hard to convince my students that math is just a game or puzzle and their attitude will determine how they approach the problems. This supports my thoughts exactly and really gets kids thinking about numbers.Karen Greenberghttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12272747678480176988noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6714058.post-47077798829532126242013-09-21T21:26:48.143-07:002013-09-21T21:26:48.143-07:00#13 Answer is 4.

Did it once, read it over twice to make sure. <br /><br />The number is between 100-999. <br />You have 3 positions to fill. The only two digits that aren't next to each other are in position 1 & 3. The tens digit can not be greater, which I assume means it's the largest number which is 9. So 9 goes in the 2nd position which is the tens digit. And it says the tens digit is one more than the hundreds digit, which must be 8. So 8 goes into the 1st & 3rd position. <br /><br />Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6714058.post-84763853082739456952013-09-21T17:21:13.216-07:002013-09-21T17:21:13.216-07:00898?

I am surprised it was a 3rd grade question, though-- it took a lot of thought on my part.Megan Patrickhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11802657176270030466noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6714058.post-87387642140879517412013-09-21T16:51:56.840-07:002013-09-21T16:51:56.840-07:00I read it 2x and think the answer is 898.

But, I read it yesterday while I was going through my blogs, then set it aside until I had more time to comment to blogs. <br /><br />I read it through three to four times, the last time just now when I had my mind set on doing it.Liz A.http://www.blogger.com/profile/16531953467834426316noreply@blogger.com
