there are four seasons each year Rafael gets a haircut two times each season one at our Lowe's barbershop and the other at awesome snips which choices represent the number of haircuts Rafael will get this year and they've even made a diagram for us right over here so they tell us there's four seasons in the year spring summer autumn winter and then each season Rafael gets two haircuts he gets one at Arlo's and one at awesome snips so in spring this is the one that he gets at our Lowe's this is the one that he gets at awesome snips at summer this is when he gets it Arlo's this is the one that he gets at awesome snips autumn this is one he gets a heart gets at our Lowe's this is the one not awesome snips in winter this is the one at our Lowe's this is the one at Awesome snips so they ask us which choices represent the number of haircuts Raphael will get this year well one way to think about it is in spring he will get two haircuts then in summer he's going to get another two haircuts in autumn he's going to get another two haircuts and then in winter he's going to get another two haircuts so he's going to get to in spring plus two in summer plus two in autumn plus two in winter which is going to be equal to eight haircuts so which of these represent eight let's see two plus two that's not 8 4 plus 4 plus 4 plus 4 that's not 8 that's 16 2 plus 2 is 4 4 plus 4 is 8 plus 4 is 12 plus 4 is 16 that's not 8 4 plus 4 that is equal to 8 that is the number of haircuts Raphael is going to get this year so we can check that one 2 plus 2 plus 2 plus 2 that's exactly what we wrote here and it is 8 so that is equal to the number of haircuts he's going to get this year and then 2 plus 4 well that's not equal to 8 that 6 so that's not right so these are the two that represent the number of haircuts Raphael will get this year
