Clarify

Each compartment in this box contains six jelly beans of the same flavor.
They are arranged in two layers of three beans.
There is a different flavor in each compartment.



Find the BIG Question(s)

1. How many different flavors are there in the box?
2. How many beans are there altogether?

3. Is making a box to hold 40 flavours possible?

Solve

1. 12 X 3 = 36
So the answer is 36
I used Write an Equation
2. 12 X 3 X 6 = 216
So the answer is 261
used Write an Equation
3. Yes, the picture below will show you how

I used draw (or make) a picture
and Write an Equation because I had to find out how big the array of jelly beans was going to be before I made it.

Summarise

There is a box of jelly beans with 3 rows and 12 columns.
In each compartment there is a new flavour and 6 jelly beans of that flavour.
If you times the number of rows by the number of columns then you get the answer to question 1
The answer is 36

Now, there is 6 beans of each flavour.
There are 36 flavours
if you times the number of flavours by 6 (the number of beans in each flavours' compartment you get the answer to qustion 2.
The answer is 216

To get a box that hold 40 flavours you need 40 compartments.
That means you could have 4 rows and 10 columns because 4 X 10 = 40
So if you can put them in this box that has just been mentioned they all would fit
So the answer is it is POSSIBLE!
