Which number sentences show how to solve the problem? Sasha’s family donated 12 boxes of canned vegetables to the food pantry. There are 24 cans in each box. Three boxes are filled with canned peas; the rest are filled with canned corn. How many cans of corn did Sasha’s family donate to the food pantry? Choose all answers that are correct. A. 12 – 3 = 9 and 9 × 12 = 108 B. 12 – 3 = 9 and 9 × 24 = 216 C. 3 × 24 = 72 and 3 × 12 = 36 36 + 72 = 108 D. 12 × 24 = 288, 3 × 24 = 72, and 288 – 72 = 216

    a total of 288 cans - the number canned peas = total of canned corns (since that's the remaining amount)

    i don't think so.. remember you find the total and then subtract from that the # of canned peas to get the number of canned corns

    look at option D. 1) find the total cans -- 12 boxes x 24 cans = 288 cans total 2) find the number of canned peas -- 3 boxes x 24 cans = 72 cans 3) subtract the number of canned peas from the total cans -- 288 cans total - 72 cans =

    yes or choice D (since you need to show how you got to 216 cans properly)
