Great basic extension problem for multiplication. I’m confused, however, about the hint. It’s also worth mentioning that the total number of carrots is not limited to 0-9

I may have been sloppy on my language. Perhaps I should have said “digits” instead of “numbers.” So that 18 is a number that uses two digits “1” and “8” to make a number.

That does it! Thanks Chase…for the comment and the task.

I went ahead and updated the problem to say digits instead of numbers.

This is a great website! It teaches them new skills every time they do this. I totally understand the hint.
