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

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

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
