### Back to school/ September Raffle question!

Welcome back to School- It is a pleasure getting to know the new 7th graders!

Monthly I offer a chance for students to challenge themselves with a word problem. If you try the problem and post your response here, I will put your name in the raffle jar for the end of the month raffle! Here is this months problem...
