  11. Hey Owen, this is nearly identical to the task I put up about 3 years ago, do you think we should take mine down or maybe collaborate? Your title is definitely better and I went all the way to 10 just because it provided a few more answers and touched on decimals. Also, I was inspired by the book The Wishing Club, which goes perfectly with these tasks.
