## family reunion

Third graders worked in pairs to solve this problem:

Your family reunion is coming up and you are in charge of renting the tables. Your rich uncle Richie is paying for the tables, and he doesn't care what they cost. He wants everyone to have a seat with no seats left over, and to keep things interesting, he wants two different kinds of tables. 36 relatives will be coming. Here are the tables available: circle (seats 3), square (seats 4), pentagon (seats 5), hexagon (seats 6). How many different ways can you solve the problem?
