Remember the **Math Adventurer’s Rule: Figure it out for yourself!** Whenever I give a problem in an Alexandria Jones story, I will try to post the answer soon afterward. But don’t peek! If I tell you the answer, you miss out on the fun of solving the puzzle. So if you haven’t worked these problems yet, go back to the original posts. If you’re stuck, read the hints. Then go back and try again. Figure them out for yourself — and then check the answers just to prove that you got them right.

This post offers hints and answers to puzzles from these blog posts:

- Introduction to Probability
- Alex’s Birthday Surprise
- Probability and Baby Blues
- Story Problem Challenge Revisited

Also available as a printable handout: Story Problem Challenge handout.
