There are three baskets, a brown
one, a red
one and a pink
one. Together they are holding a total of ten eggs.

The brown basket
has one more egg in it than the red
basket.

The red
basket has three eggs less than the pink
basket.

How many eggs are in each basket?

**Getting Started**:

Cut out ten eggs from
paper and get three containers to represent the baskets. Have a go at trying some different
combinations.

**After a while ask this**:

Why don't you choose a number of eggs
for the pink basket? How many would be in the red basket, then? And how many in
the brown basket?

Solutions are to be
completed by
