Sillybandz Word Problem

You have 12 sillybandz. Right away, you snap one of them in half. You accidentally flick another one at your sister and she snatches it and refuses to give it back. You lose yet another at the grocery store. You give three to your friends at school. Two more get confiscated when your mom catches them in your mouth.

Q: How many sillybandz do you have left?


I have one child who is having extreme difficulty accepting that that number is less than 12.

Natalie said...

Doh! I'm gonna say 4-1/2...I hope I'm at least close so I don't embarrass myself!

THAT question is why i became an english major!!! (basically, in lowercase, too, and not ashamed of it!)
my answer would be 4, because when the one snapped in half, they *both* entered the trash!

Jen said...

How about twelve if the remaining ones are split in thirds? Or none if the arguing continues and they go the way of the "no TV" contract the child brought home?

Charlotte said...

The answer, obviously, is TOO MANY.

Ha! Knowing my 9 yr. old son's logic he would also say 12, since he would insist that he didn't do any of those things or it wasn't his fault. Therefore, he should still have all 12 of his Sillybandz.

FOUR! I'm going to say four.

Final answer.

And thank goodness we are beyond the sillybandz phase. Although I might buy some for my nephew just to make my btother mad....

These Silly Bandz are killing me softly.

Overthinking Mama said...

ok.. i must be really behind...

um... what are sillbandz?? lol.

Janine said...

Well, it's going to be four. Unless these Sillybandz can reproduce. Which I'm starting to consider, given the prolific nature of their popularity for my piano students.

I'm w/Jen. The answer is ZERO, young man, if I hear another word about it!

mary said...

i can't take them anymore. The 12 or so we have around the house have been "traded" with friends. Amazingly, I have never purchased any for them to trade...

Answer: You probably went to some cheap dollar store and bought a knock off brand because you didn't go to a major retailer like Toys R us, any Hallmark store in the region or Borders Book Store.

You started with 0 Sillybandz and ended with 0 Sillybandz.

www.sillybandz.com and get the real deal.

Thanks. :)

In 2001 designer handbags promoted the fall &winter handbags and wallets were inspired form military subject, three kind of designer bags designs were made completely by the facile black cowhide, but matched the yellow brass button which played the part. Also after the processing, the handbags looked specially, were carved louis vuitton on the brass button and the surface.
