Gummie Bears
  • You have a huge container filled with your favorite candy, Gummie Bears. The container holds a dozen gross Gummie Bears, but unfortunately, someone picked out all of the red bears, which is one sixth of all of the Gummie Bears. How many Gummie Bears are left in the container? (hint: a gross is not yucky, it is a unit of measurement. Finding out how many items are in a gross will help.)
