    Which strategies can be used to solve this problem? A new company sold 4,284 pairs of boots in its first year, 3,726 pairs in its second year, and 2,125 pairs in its third year. How many more pairs did the company sell in the second and third year together than in its first year? Choose all answers that are correct. A. Work backward. Add the amount of pairs sold in the second and third year together. Then subtract this amount from the pairs sold in the first year (4,284). B. Draw a diagram. Draw 3 circles and write the number of pairs sold for each year. Cross out the circle with 4,284 in it. Circle the other 2 circles and add up the amounts in the circles. C. Use logical reasoning. Combine the number of pairs sold in the second and third years (3,726 + 2,125). Then subtract the pairs sold in the first year (4,284) from the sum. D. Translate into an equation. (3,726 + 2,125) – 4,284 = p

    Why only c and d? What's wrong with A and B. Try explaining.

    because you have to have a greater amount to subtract a smaller amount from it, and the other one is saying that your subtracting a larger number from a smaller number. and the circle one isn't even doing any subtraction.

    We know that B is definitely not correct, but do you think you could explain to me the significant difference between A and C?

    Take a closer look and A and C first. Then describe to me the similarities and differences between them.

    Work backward. Add the amount of pairs sold in the second and third year together. Then subtract this amount from the pairs sold in the first year (4,284).

    You copy and pasted that, but yes. Add the amount sold in the second and third year together, then subtract that amount from that which was sold in the first year. If we did that, would we get a different answer from the one we got for C?

    Here's what we'll do. Calculate the answer you got for C. Let me know what you get, then post it here.

    How do you know that C and D are correct if you don't know how to compute the numerical answer?

    Yes, that is the numerical answer to the question. So D is correct. We just have to figure out which of the other options A, B, and C would give us the same answer we got for D.

    You said C would also give us the same answer. I agree with that, but now we need to figure out if A or B would give us the same answer or not.

    Well, actually, C and D aren't the only correct answers.
