How many cans of soda does it take to create the display of the American flag?

How many 12-packs did he use to make the display?

How did you figure it out?

Here’s what we did:

We think that the flag is 12 twelve-packs across and 13 twelve-packs high. So, we figured out that he used a total of 156 twelve-packs used to make the display. We know that 12 rows of 12 twelve-packs is 144 twelve-packs, and one more row of twelve-packs means that there are 156 twelve-packs. Then, we multiplied the 156 twelve-packs by 12 since there are 12 cans per twelve-pack. (That’s a rather obvious statement, isn’t it.) Our total is 1872 cans of soda.
