Jack and Jill each have a stamp collection. Together they have 476 stamps. One collection has 18 more stamps than the other. How many stamps are in each collection? Order the steps used to solve the problem.
 a. Find 2 numbers that add to 476. One number is 18 more than the other. b. Again guess and test different numbers. Add 230 +230 = 460. Then subtract 476 - 460 = 16. The difference is only a little too small. One number must be a little smaller than 230. c. Guess and test different numbers. Add 220 + 220 = 440. Then subtract 476 - 440 = 36. The difference is too big. Both numbers must be bigger than 220. d. The answer is 476 - 229 = 247. There are 229 stamps in one collection and 247 stamps in the other collection.
