Quandaries and Queries


I am a confused mom. My 3rd grader has a question in her math homework. We guessed the answer might be 80 but I want to know your opinion if it is correct. The problem goes like this: 

I am a 2 digit number. Both of my digits are even. My tens digit is 8 more than my ones digit. What number am I?

thanks more power!



Hi Grace,

I agree, it has to be 80. After zero the next smallest even integer is two and two plus eight is not a one digit number.
