Brad Walked to the shore. There he saw 4 rocks lying side to side. Resting on the rocks were crabs. each rock had 2 more crabs than the rock to its left. There were 56 crabs in all. From left to right, how many crabs were on each rock

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Crabs on first rock=11 crabs

Crabs on second rock=13 crabs

Crabs on third rock=15 crabs

Crabs on fourth rock=17 crabs

Total crabs=11+13+15+17=56 crabs

but can you teach the steps you took

Yes i can

so can you show

crabs added in 2nd rock=2

crabs added in third rock=2+2=4

crabs added in third rock=4+2=6

Total crabs added from left to right=2+4+6=12

now minus the added crabs from the total crabs we get 56-12=44

as there are total 4 crabs so divide the 44 on 4 rocks.44/4=11

is it ok?
