Sari visits her friend LaToya so often that she likes to vary her route. If Sari never moves along diagonals and never walks back toward her own house, how many different routes can she take to go to LaToya's house?
You have to list each route and then check carefully. There are a total of 5 routes she can take. The first way is through letter E and then to the right. #2 is to A and down then turn right. #3 is to B and down then to right. #4 is to C and down then turn right. #5 is to D and down to LaToya's house.
Mr. Rampolla went to a carnival this past summer and he met the Math Projectionist. He invited him to our school but he was unable to attend in person, so he sent along this.

He is giving you a clue because it is your first time.
Mr. Titen and Mrs. MacKinney were having lunch. They ate three pizzas from the tray. Now they want to split the rest equally. But as you know Mrs. MacKinney can't do anything in a simple way. She said that we must split the pizzas with ONE single straight slice through the tray so that it divides the pizzas fairly.
One solution is to cut horizontally through the tray. But that's too easy, find another way to cut them so that the areas are equal on each side. (Remember it must be a straight cut.)
