How are you today? I have a funny story to tell you. We have a small wooden area at the back of our house. It’s kind of like a deck. I asked Jeff to paint it and I picked out the color. Well… I picked the wrong color. I didn’t think about how it would look on the wood. It actually LOOKS LIKE SNOW!!!! It looks SO SILLY!!! I will try to take a picture so you can see it. Now I have to pick out a new color… Wish me luck!!!

Use the algorithm to solve these problems:
4599 + 2338= n
2398 + 5667= n
7899 + 2569 = n
1999 + 3856 = n
9756 + 2389 = n*** This is a SUPER hard problem!!!
Okay. Okay. I get it. You’re TIRED of practicing your multiplication facts. Sooooooooo… I will give you a day off from practicing. HOORAY!!!! BUUUUUUUUUUUUT… Could you please answer these multiplication problems for me?
