Monarch Math: Solution

Question:
If each paper butterfly carried an equal amount of conservation money to Mexico how much would each of the 65,565 butterflies carry?

Solution:
We sent 65,565 symbolic butterflies to Mexico along with $13,924 for conservation work. To solve: Divide 13,924 by 65,565. This equals 21.23 cents.

Picture This!
Each little paper ambassador symbolically carried with it about a 21¢ contribution on its journey south!


One More Challenge:
Beautiful handmade paper monarchs "migrate" to Mexico each fall and return when the live monarchs head North. How do the weights of the live and paper monarchs compare? >>
