School 1- So first we have to split 45 into 9 parts, and also figure out how much is on one part. So I know that 9x? has to equal 45, so that's five. There is five in one part. But we want 7 of those five's so 7 x 5=35.
School 2- Now we have to split 56 into 8 parts, so I know that 7 x 8=56 so there is 7 in one part. But I want 6 of those so 7 x 6= 42. But it says which school has sold the most gingerbread men and the answer to that is school number 2.
